The One Nation Leader had left the party for 13 years and returned to the head office 15 months ago in time for the next election, after she said a lot of people urged her to run again.

“People have said to me what you said has come true, we need you in the parliament,” she said.

Ms Hanson (62) said the support she found in the City of Swan was incredible.

“I had so many people come up to me and support me and offer support for One Nation in the next election,” she said.

Ms Hanson said the party had previously enjoyed 27 per cent of the vote in WA and “I believe that support is still there” she said.

Ms Hanson said she was in Perth to endorse the new candidate and number one Senate holder for One Nation, Rod Culleton, a Williams farmer who has challenged the banks and the court system over the confiscation of farms by banks.

Referring to the violence in the Eastern States at the weekend, Ms Hanson said she was concerned that gang warfare had been part of the clashes in Federation Square in Melbourne and in Sydney.

“I am multi-racial, I support a multi-racial nation but I do not support multiculturalism because this violence has evolved from that.

“Victorian police figures show the Sudanese have the highest crime rate in Melbourne per head per capita but the police need to address that, they are not keeping up with that,” Ms Hanson said.

The One Nation leader said gangs of different cultures had also changed Brisbane and western parts of Sydney.

Ms Hanson said weapons and violence was not the Australian way.

She believes the problem with multiculturalism is “we have never seen this type of violence in Australia in the past, it did not exist”.

“I’m not attacking other cultures food and dances; what I’m saying is that they have to assimilate, they can’t bring that gang violence of other cultures here to our country which is a relatively peaceful country.”

Ms Hanson said Australia needs to change the mindset of cultural assimilation so that other nationalities adopt Australia’s culture.

“We have allowed society to have their rights taken away, the rights of the innocent,” Ms Hanson said.

She said Australia needed stronger leadership from the top.

She hoped that Mr Culleton was the type of man who could offer the leadership West Australians would seek in the Senate.

“He is a decent honest man and a wonderful bloke who would make a strong candidate in WA.”

Mr Culleton has previously given evidence at the Senate Inquiry into rural practices and the banks.

“I am very disappointed that Barnaby Joyce has sold the farm to the Chinese in Queensland,” he said.

“The future of Australia is not quarries; that is wrong – it will be in agriculture.

“You can’t grow anything without sunshine and we get a lot of sunshine,” Mr Culleton said.

Lake Grace Farmer Peter Stone said he had known Mr Culleton for many decades in the district and his father.

“He is a guy who is fairly switched on to most things country, city and business issues,” Mr Stone said.

“He’s doing a top job and he would make a lot of difference in the parliament for these rural areas.

“There are a lot of MP’s in parliament who forgot about the people on the street.”

Mr Culleton said he had a lot of respect for Ms Hanson because she had predicted the future.

“If you go back through her media she has stuck to her guns,” he said.
