The Palaszczuk government's move to potentially suspend parliament until October's election could curry favour with voters who like strong leadership, says a political expert.
Moves like the introduction of new powers overnight that could potentially shut down parliament have not been seen since Joh Bjelke-Petersen was premier, according to Griffith University's Dr Paul Williams.
The adjournment of parliament would probably sit well with the voters, much to the dismay of the opposition, Dr Williams told AAP.
"I don't think the Palaszczuk government is going to suffer much blow-back," Dr Williams said.
"Queensland's a state whose electors love strong leadership - it's part of our political culture.
"Our political culture also says we don't have a lot time for the airs and graces or niceties of Westminster parliamentary democracy."
Not being scrutinised during public sittings means voters may forget many issues the government has faced including Jackie Trad's housing scandal and debate about the Adani coal mine.
"It has denied oxygen to the LNP and opposition leader Deb Frecklington," he said.
"She will be largely marginalised from political discourse over the next few months."
A major unknown during this political period is whether the state budget will go ahead as usual.
Dr Williams said there were plenty of question marks surrounding how the budget takes place.
One option which could be explored, he said, was for members to possibly attend parliament via video-call, or for the treasurer to pass the budget to then be voted through retrospectively.
