Pauline Hanson’s One Nation will receive more than $250,000 of taxpayers’ money after the WA election result.
The money, paid as public funding for political parties when candidates get more than 4 per cent of the primary vote, is a significant windfall for One Nation despite a poor electoral result across the State.
One Nation polled above 4 per cent in each of the 35 seats it contested, except for Scarborough where Margaret Dodd pulled out just before the poll.
The Liberal Party is likely to receive $1.2 million, a drop of almost $700,000.
Labor will get more than $1.7 million, up from $1.3 million in 2013.
