Port Lincoln business owner Tanya Bieniasz says she was not surprised by the infighting from the Liberal party but hoped they would focus on issues that many Australians cared about.

“I understand why others put their hand up, because they obviously don’t believe in his policies,” Mrs Bieniasz said.

“I believe you vote for a party, not a prime minister.”

Mrs Bieniasz said her main concerns for the country were the rising cost of living, electricity prices, and the drought.

She said the infighting was interesting so close to an election.

Mrs Bieniasz said she felt insulated from federal politics.

“Every government is bad for small business.”
