Labor state secretary, Evan Moorhead, said the state administrative committee met to consider the nomination of a candidate for the Toowoomba South by-election.
He said it resolved that winning the federal election was the first priority for Queensland Labor.
“The July 16 by-election is not on the party’s agenda,” Mr Moorhead said.
“The ALP’s made the decision that the federal election is our number one priority.”
“Toowoomba South is a by-election of the LNP’s making and we’re not going to be running a candidate.
“We’ve got quite a strong branch in Toowoomba South and we had a number of people that were keen to get involved, however winning the federal election is our priority.” Toowoomba South is considered a safe conservative electorate.
