The IPA’s John Roskam says 16 of the “poorest 20 seats” in Australia are held by the Liberal Party, that are those the Coalition should “fight for and stand for”.
“The Labor Party now holds more wealthy seats than does the Liberal Party,” Mr Roskam informed Sky News host Peta Credlin.
“After Saturday night, seven of the wealthiest 20 electorates in Australia are held by the Labor Party, five by the Liberals.
“It’s not just a question of what do the Liberals need to do to get into the government again, it’s a question of what do they want to be, who do they want fight for.
“And, certainly, from my position, as a Liberal Party member and from the IPA’s position, the people who need a voice are those hit by rise in power prices, are those who are concerned about their children’s education.
“It is not the post-material emotional appeal of the teals, of the Greens, and now of large sections of the Labor Party that the Liberal Party should be repeating.”
