The Shadow Minister for Local Government says there was no support for the state government's plan to change the voting rules for council elections.
Ann Leahy, who is the LNP Member for Warrego, said she and a number of shadow ministers were travelling across the north west after the floods engaging with constituents and councils.
"I've met with Winton and Mount Isa councils and about to head to Cloncurry and McKinlay," Ms Leahy said.
"And what they are telling is that they already have enough to deal with and don't need more distractions like the changes to the local government system proposed by the Palaszczuk government."
Ms Leahy said the proposed changes, which include compulsory preferential voting are not linked to any integrity reforms.
"Councils want to keep local government local and don't want it politicised and that's what these changes will do - compulsory preferential voting favours Labor."
