MP Rob Oakeshott will contest for the NSW seat of Cowper in the upcoming Federal election 2016. He will strive to take seat because it had been represented outrageously bad. Why he has decided to step in Parliament again? The reason for coming back in the Parliament is to focus on community work, education and health. Explaining his reason that there is lack of progress on tax and constitutional recognition for indigenous Aussies. He pointed out the incompetency and failure of local MPs pertaining to comprehensive tax reforms.
According to ABC news Mr Oakeshott said,”I was hoping the local MPs for the area would continue building on the community work around education and health, and that they would continue to focus on the many disadvantaged communities of our region.
Oakeshott said: “Over time, I realised I had more to give, and the politics was still in my blood. I believe the representation of the mid-north coast is currently poor, and I strongly believe I can do better for all of us.”
“Because of this, I feel an obligation to stand, and to allow voters the choice to either agree or disagree. Ultimately, I am hoping this decision creates a referendum on representation in Cowper, and whether the community deserves better. I think we do.”
Mr Oakeshott resigned in 2013 and he expressed it by saying that the previous three years were the toughest of his life.
