Australian election 2022: Senate candidate Drew Pavlou’s mother delivers BRUTAL takedown

The mother of an independent Senate candidate backed her son’s campaign by pleading: ‘Please vote for him. I need him out of the house, I’m fucking sick of him!’

Drew Pavlou, 22, is running for Senate in Queensland under the banner of the Democratic Alliance, which fights on an anti-Chinese Communist Party platform, endorsing the plight of Uyghurs and Tibetans.

He has pulled off a series of stunts across the country during his campaign that has seen him attacked by Chinese vendors and arrested by police.

Now his mother, Vanessa Pavlou, 48, has joined his team in a bid to get him elected and out of the family home.

In her son’s latest campaign video, she is seen flirting with passers-by, telling one, “You’re a handsome devil, honey,” as she shoves election fliers into his hand.

Wearing a T-shirt with his name on it, he turns to the camera to plead, ‘Please vote for Drew, I need him out of the house.’ I want peace, I want quiet, I’m fucking sick of him!

The video also shows her exasperatedly pleading with strangers to just ‘pretend’ to take her flyers for the cameras.

Another clip shows her begging others to take the flyers because she is a ‘breast cancer survivor’, after successfully beating the disease last year.

“His videos were a bit boring so I asked Drew if we could lighten things up a bit,” he admitted to Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday.

He asked me to please lower it a bit. But I said, “Do you want to leave the house or not? Do you want this or not?”

Pavlou made headlines last month when he confronted angry Asian vendors at a Sydney open-air market by holding up a sign that read “F*** Xi Jinping.”

The insult to the Chinese president sparked an angry reaction among some of the locals of Chinese descent at the Eastwood Mall, with one allegedly attacking Pavlou’s cameraman. A 48-year-old man was later arrested.

He was also arrested and fined nearly $1,000 this week for holding a blank billboard two inches off the ground outside the Chinese consulate in Brisbane.

Police said their protest was “causing public anxiety,” he tweeted.

“It’s definitely controversial,” mom Vanessa said. But her heart is in the right place.

Mr. Pavlou’s family heritage is Cypriot, but he became interested in the plight of Tibetans and Uyghurs at a young age, which he became more passionate about while at university.

His Democratic Alliance party, founded last year, has five multinational candidates running for election in Queensland, South Australia and New South Wales.

“Drew has always been interested in history and politics,” Ms. Pavlou said. ‘Then when he was in college, he became very interested in the CCP and what they were doing, and it all moved on from there.

He’s on that path now and he won’t budge from it. He has been called a racist and it affects him, but he is not anti-China… he is anti-CCP and his party is very multicultural.’

Tibetan-born Kyinsom Dhongdue is fighting for Bennelong’s fringe seat in Sydney, once held by John Howard for his Democratic Alliance party.

In Melbourne’s Chishol constituency, Hong Kong-born Max Mok is campaigning against Chinese-born Liberal MP Gladys Liu.

The party also has couple of Uyghur descent Adila Yarmuhammad vying to be elected senator for South Australia and Inty Elham campaigning in Sturt’s electorate.

Ms Pavlou admitted that she and her father may have been responsible for the larrikin spirit her son has brought to his campaign… and she prays it will be a success.

“He probably has 50 percent of me and he has the drive from his father,” he said. She has always had a pretty strong will.

“Every mother wants to have her son home forever, but I woke up on Mother’s Day and he was in jail.

I just need a little peace!

She added: ‘I hope he gets in. I think at the end of the day, I’m happy that she got to where she did and raised awareness of her issues.

Everyone is fed up with what has been going on in the last two years. So I think we need a little more freedom, more freedom of expression and less interference from outside.’
