Federal election 2022: Barnaby Joyce launches into teal independent candidates

Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has launched into the independent candidates that challenged Liberal MPs across the nation, labelling them “selfish and self-indulgent”.

The Nationals Leader’s comments came among a string of other claims just minutes into the vote count last night, where he also said the Labor Party would fail to represent regional people and that there had been a swing towards the Nationals in Indigenous communities.

Mr Joyce, who has been deputy Prime Minister since last year, unleashed on the way candidates — dubbed the “teal independents” — had campaigned against the Liberal Party this election, which he said could make the nation a laughing stock.

“I’m so angry with this, because it’s self-indulgent and selfish,” he said.

“If you believe independents are the way to go, let’s have 1151 of them, let’s have total chaos… in the parliament. We know we would be a laughing stock.
