'I will be PM': Tony Abbott

OPPOSITION leader Tony Abbott has told Queenslanders he is confident he will be the next elected Prime Minister of Australia.

Addressing the Liberal National Party's 2012 Queensland state election campaign launch in Brisbane on Sunday, Mr Abbott said senior Labor frontbenchers Stephen Smith, Bill Shorten and incoming foreign affairs minister Bob Carr also stood a chance of snaring the top job.

''But I think I will be the next elected Prime Minister of Australia,'' he said. 

He said the outcome of the upcoming Queensland election, to be held on March 24, was important Australia wide.

''The message which has to go loud and clear, from the people of Queensland to the whole of Australia, is that bad governments get punished,'' he said.
