Via Daily Mail:
A pro-Beijing Liberal candidate has taken out ads in a Chinese-language newspaper urging voters with the same ethnic background to elect ‘one of their own people’.
Peter Zhuang, a 51-year-old property developer and company director, is representing the Liberal National Party at this Saturday’s Queensland state election in the southern Brisbane seat of Stretton, which has a high concentration of voters with a Chinese background.
Ahead of the Halloween election on October 31, Mr Zhuang placed an advertisement in last week’s Queensland Chinese Times.
Translated from Mandarin, his pitch said: ‘Vote for Peter Zhuang, vote for our own people.’
…Daily Mail Australia can also reveal Mr Zhuang, who moved to Australia in 2005, has previously called on Communist China to exert it its influence from the South China Sea to northern Asia and Australia.
There’s nothing quite like the “tough on China” national security credentials of the LNP.
