In Australia, the main centre-right block is a coalition of four parties, known collectively as "The Coalition":

  • Liberal Party, whose leader typically becomes Prime Minister in a Coalition government
  • The Nationals, whose leader typically becomes Deputy Prime Minister in a Coalition government
  • Liberal National Party, which is the only Coalition party that runs in Queensland
  • Country Liberal Party, which is the only Coalition party that runs in the Northern Territory

Given that it's the Liberal Leader who is typically the Coalition's candidate for Prime Minister, can someone running for the Coalition in a seat where the Liberal Party does not run (i.e. Queensland or the Northern Territory) become Prime Minister?
