As the crossbench expands by one, narrowing the government's majority in parliament, Bob Katter says he will continue to support the government.
"I don't think anyone on the crossbenches wants to be destabilising the Government," Mr Katter said.
"They won the 2019 election and they're entitled to govern."
Mr Katter's statement comes after controversial Sydney MP Craig Kelly quit the Liberal Party on Tuesday over concerns about the virus and a staffer under fire.
There are now seven crossbenchers in the House of Representatives, taking the government's numbers to 76 in the 151-member chamber.
However Mr Katter wants the government to press ahead with his agenda.
"I have made it extremely clear to the Prime Minister that the water projects in North Queensland (Hughenden Irrigation Scheme, Hells Gates Dam (Revised Bradfield Scheme), the Big Rocks Weir) and Copperstring 2.0 transmission line, are critical to inland Australia," he said.
Mr Katter said he was backing Scott Morrison not the Liberal Party.
"Scott's family come from Cloncurry (the Gilmores), he's a Christian and a patriotic Australian," he said.
"I vote on my conscience, my personal beliefs and the interests of the electorate and I will continue to do what's right."
