ROZANE Bezuidenhout is passionate about aged care and policies around the protection of the elderly.
The public sector worker wants to see every Australian with a roof over their heads and wants to see a government focus on education and the provision of universal medical access to West Australians.
The need to see change is what drove Mrs Bezuidenhout to become a Pauline Hanson’s One Nation candidate for Cannington at the March State Election.
“I supported the Liberal Party before but I felt a loss of passion; Pauline’s approach is what appealed to me, she looks out for the man on the street,” she said.
“I had never been political but One Nation embodies me.”
Mrs Bezuidenhout moved to Canning Vale from South Africa is 2008 with her husband and three children.
Since becoming an Australian citizen, she said she had become more active in the community; and developed an idea of what she would like to see.
“I find the current Government hi-tech investment in schools doesn’t cater for all students, we are catering to a selected few not the masses or children with other needs,” she said.
“The Government is only focusing on mining, forgetting about the basic principles of health, education and policing.”
Despite not living in Cannington, Mrs Bezuidenhout said she utilised most of the region’s amenities including sporting facilities and shopping centres.
“As time goes by I would like to move there,” she said.
Addressing reports she was a supporter of apartheid, Mrs Bezuidenhout said the claims were unfounded.
“I am not a white supremacist, I have always lived in multi cultural societies,” she said.
“I think people set out to make One Nation candidates look like questionable people, the fact those things were written about me is frightening to me.”
