A majority of Queenslanders have voted in favour of giving state governments four-year terms.
Counting is still under way, but the “yes” vote, which was backed by the government and Opposition had a handy margin.

Ms Roebig said she also shared the same view.
Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath said fixed four-year terms had wide support across all sides of politics and would bring Queensland into line with every other state government in Australia, except Tasmania.
