THE Liberal Party has ruled out running a ticket in our council election.
They had been weighing up whether or not to field a team for some time.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Local Government Conference of the Liberal Party spokesman Justin Levido confirmed the party would not run a ticket at the September 8 poll.
He said the decision was made in the last week or so, but did not give details about the reasoning.
Country Labor and The Greens are each fielding a team in the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council election.
