MEMBER for Mirani Ted Malone is hopeful Premier-elect Campbell Newman turns his way when it comes to putting together his new-look Cabinet.

The long-term Central Queensland politician has faithfully served his party for nearly two decades, serving many years in shadow ministry roles.

On the weekend he stormed to victory against Labor's Jim Pearce.

Yesterday he was looking ahead to the LNP tackling the big issues that he believes have disenchanted the community for so long such as reducing debt, bureaucratic waste and the red tape hampering business.

He said he was keen to see a mining company start working at Mt Morgan and to "pull together" under strict supervision the merger between CQUniversity and CQ TAFE to make the region "the training capital of Australia".

Asked if he expected to be part of the Cabinet, Mr Malone said: "First up that's a call that Campbell Newman will make.

"I have been shadow minister in different portfolios for 16 of the 18 years I have been in parliament.

"I have written policy in a number of areas during my shadow ministry positions."

Mr Malone said he would be happy to serve in any role, but obviously leant towards those positions he'd previously acted in a shadow capacity in.

These include industrial relations and employment skills and emergency services.

He said the new Cabinet would be established within the next fortnight.

Mr Malone believes Labor shot itself in the foot with its personal attacks on Mr Newman in its election campaign.
