One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has claimed that her party might just form a government someday. She presented an outlined blueprint for the country, which includes pushing for newly married couples to acquire their pre-nuptial agreements and changes to the tax system to push for a “better Australia.”

“I think there is a place, in the future, for One Nation on government benches,” the senator told reporters. Hanson has arrived in Canberra to participate in the parliamentary year this week. Her blueprint for the country also includes a flat two percent tax rate for all Australians, even welfare recipients, as well as getting newlyweds to have premarital agreements.

Hanson has clarified that family law should be one of the priorities for Australia. She believes that focusing on the family law system would lessen the burden that the court faces.

“Family law is high on my agenda. I just think it needs a complete overhaul,” she told the Sunday Mail.

Hanson said the proposed family law would force newlyweds to secure court-approved premarital agreements that could address financial and parental issues after failed marriage. She promises that the agreements would be confidential and lodged with courts.

Under her vision for a better country, the leader of One Nation aims to decrease the number of politicians and limit migration. She also wished to launch an Australian identity card and establish a royal commission into Islam.

The senator believes that Australians see her not as a career politician, but as a woman next door. She said the public sees her in a way that she could be their sister, their mother or their neighbour next door.

Hanson is confident that she’s the kind of person who can make a decision. She recognised that events in the past make one’s future decisions better. She has also commented about members of parliament laughing at the prospect. She said the last laugh will be on them.

Coalition MP Christopher Pyne could not help but burst into laughter when asked by the media about his thought regarding Hanson’s outline for the country if she becomes leader of Australia.

“Leader of what?” Pyne grinned. He thinks it is unlikely that Hanson’s party will manage to build a government in the land down under.

Hanson started her political works as a member of Ipswich City Council in 1994. In 1997, she has co-founded One Nation, a right-wing political party with a populist and conservative platform committed in ensuring  those convicted of crimes endure appropriate penalties and there is equal treatment among Australians.
