LNP promised to drop unemployment to 4 per cent by 2018, during the 2012 election campaign..

TV advertising by Labor states that the LNP have failed to live up their promise to drop unemployment to 4 per cent by 2018.

But is is only 2015 !
LNP still have 3 years to fulfill that promise. How can it be a broken promise if we are not in 2018 yet ?

The LNP promised to drop unemployment to 4 per cent over six years during the 2012 election campaign.

Queensland’s unemployment rate continues to rise, reaching its highest level since June 2003.
But Queensland’s result was in line with the nation and other states.
