Queensland is about to have a State Election.
For an individual to put themself forward as a candidate, they need either the support of 6 enrolled voters or the support of a registered party.
If the candidate currently runs a private company, or is employed full-time, etc... what is practically required of them in relation to these existing commitments in order to fulfill their duties as a new Member of Parliament?
A day in the life of an MP typically looks like this. The candidate's life will probably get busier than their life prior to being an MP, so do they need to resign from their job or have other people run their company full-time etc?
