Steve Dickson favourite to be One Nation Longman candidate

LIBERAL National Party defector Steve Dickson is the favourite to run for One Nation in the upcoming federal by-election in Longman.

Pauline Hanson's party will on Thursday announce their candidate for Sunshine Coast-based seat left vacant by the resignation of Labor's MP Susan Lamb over her dual citizenship.

Mr Dickson held the Queensland seat of Buderim until he was ousted in November's state election.

He was made One Nation's state leader early last year after controversially defecting from the LNP.
