FORMER anti-mosque campaigner Julie Hoskin has been preferenced last or second last by nearly all other candidates as the major parties turn their back on a swathe of right-wing parties contesting Bendigo.
Only the conservative Rise Up Australia Party had directed its voters to preference the Fraser Anning's Conservative National Party candidate higher up the ticket.
That support was unlikely to help Ms Hoskin much, La Trobe University honourary associate Ian Tulloch said.
"Rise Up might get one per cent of the vote. I wouldn't think they will get more than that," he said.
The two major parties have banded together in a bid to block out "extreme right-wing parties", Mr Tulloch said.
They preferenced each other third, above Ms Hoskin, Sharon Budde from the anti-immigration Rise Up Australia Party and Vaughan Williams from Pauline Hanson's One Nation.
Labor and the Greens were always going to preference each other, Mr Tulloch said.
"It's inconsequential who they preference third," he said.
The Liberal Party has traded second preferences with Clive Palmer's United Australia Party.
One Nation had given its second preference to Rise Up and left Mr Anning's party second-last on their list, above the Greens.
Mr Tulloch said it could hint at the struggle ahead for election donations as it competed against groups like One Nation.
"(Fraser Anning) is a disillusioned conservative who ... has attracted negative publicity from right across the political spectrum, even right-wing newspapers," he said.
"There are very few people who are going to assist him with donations, like people on the extreme right."
Ms Hoskin was declared bankrupt last year and has an application before the court in relation to an appeal.
Undischarged bankruptcy or insolvency is grounds for disqualification from nomination for the Senate or House of Representatives under section 44 of the Constitution.
"Any disqualification of a candidate due to the operation of Section 44... can only be determined by the High Court after an election," the AEC website stated.
Mr Anning's party had been contacted to confirm its order of preferences.
Fraser Anning's party was still finalising its how to vote cards and expected to make them public later this week.
Rise Up had also yet to publish its how to vote cards, but confirmed the Liberal Party would take second spot. One Nation was preferenced fifth, behind the United Australia Party and ahead of the Greens.
Rise Up expected to publish its cards online either Monday or Tuesday.
