Clive Palmer's new party gets nod of approval from past CQ candidate

A former Central Queensland federal candidate for the Palmer United party says  he hasn't ruled out throwing his hat in a ring and running for Mr Palmer's new party.

The controversial businessman is using his companies' money to re-launch a new party - the United Australia Party.

Steven Ensby ran for the PUP party in 20-13 against Flynn MP Ken O'Dowd.

Mr Ensby says he respects Mr Palmer and thinks he is the right man to create jobs in Central Queensland.
