Australian state leader intervenes to fast track Adani coal mine
Updated : May 22, 2019 11:35 AM IST
The Carmichael mine proposed by India's Adani Mining in Queensland state was a bitterly polarizing issue ahead of weekend elections that returned the conservative coalition government for a third three-year term.
Queensland's Labor Party Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Wednesday that she wanted a time frame agreed to by Friday to deal with the two environmental hurdles that are holding up the mine.
Saturday's federal election result defied opinion polls that suggested the centre-left Labor Party would win government and implement its policies of slashing Australia's greenhouse gas emissions by 45 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.
