Potential candidates for the 2019 federal election have until noon Tuesday, April 23 to lodge their nomination.
So far four known candidates have nominated for Kennedy, sitting member Bob Katter (KAP), Brett McGuire (Labor), Frank Beveridge (LNP) and Sue Bertuch (UAP).
The North West is also represented among the Senate candidates with Cloncurry's Susan McDonald number two on the LNP Queensland ticket.
Mr Katter, campaigning with KAP Leichhartd candidate Daniel McCarthy slammed the potential regulations imposed onto owner/operators following the release of the final report of the Royal Commission labelling them "unfair" and "pro bank".
Mr Katter said the banking Royal Commission was supposed to target the banks but instead they went after mortgage brokers and small business owner/operators.
"APRA and ASIC should have been abolished. On the evidence presented there is not the slightest doubt that they were not just ineffective, they were counterproductive," Mr Katter said.
"There is not a person in this country that has had dealings with APRA and ASIC that wouldn't describe them as lapdogs, not watchdogs."
Labor's Brett McGuire was campaigning in North West Queensland before Easter.
"Even in Mount Isa I am hearing the same anger in the everyday person," Mr McGuire said.
" Everyone is demanding fair funding for our education and health systems. They want a member that can achieve"
The LNP candidate, Frank Beveridge was promoting his party's $35 million commitment to reduce power bills for community groups.
"We know community groups struggle under the weight of high power prices," Mr Beveridge said.
"We're providing grants up to $12,500 so they can invest in solar and battery projects to save money.
We're investing in community groups, so they can continue to support our local communities."
Meanwhile the Ag Energy Taskforce, an informal group of agricultural peak bodies has released its energy policy wishlist for the election.
CEO of the NIC Steve Whan said they wanted the electricity market to work like a market; to eliminate the excessive profit margins that are costing Australia jobs and production; and back primary producers in moving to renewable power with storage.
"Current energy prices are too high for Australia to be competitive with the rest of the world. That's a sad state of affairs for a country with so many natural advantages in agriculture and energy."
