Premier Campbell Newman admits LNP could lose election

PREMIER Campbell Newman has admitted the LNP could be relegated to just a one-term government in Queensland.

Speaking to Fairfax Radio 4BC Mornings, Mr Newman said the 2015 election would be a "tight" contest.

And despite having won a historic majority at the 2012 poll, Mr Newman said there was a possibility the Opposition could pull off what was considered an absolute impossibility just two-and-a-half years ago and take back government.

"...The Labor party could win with the support of independents and minor parties and if that was to happen, that would spell chaos for Queensland," he said.

"We would see the same situation frankly that we have seen in Canberra for the last seven or eight years. We don't want that. These are uncertain times. We need a strong team to take the state forward."
