Clive Palmer's United Australia Party election candidate for the federal seat of Parkes has promised to take up residence in the electorate if he is successful in the May 18 election.
Glen Innes, which sits in the New England electorate, is where Petrus Van Der Steen currently resides.
He is the only candidate seeking to represent the electorate of Parkes that does not live in the electorate.
"If I do get elected I will move to either Dubbo or Bourke, as it is more central to the region," he said.
"Glen Innes... is only one hour out of the Parkes electorate. For work I do travel and spend most of my time on the road as a touring entertainer, including in Parkes."
Mr Van Der Steen said he chose to contest the election because only his party has the right Murray Darling Basin policies.
"Nobody else did from Parkes, so don't whine if you get a passionate 'outsider' to do your dirty work," he said.
When asked why a candidate eligibility checklist he submitted to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) appeared to have no information about his overseas born parents or grandparents, Mr Van Der Steen claimed the AEC does not publish that information "due to privacy laws".
"I did divulge all relevant info about my family to the AEC," he said.
"It's no secret, I was born in the Netherlands and so were my parents and grandparents and their parents before them... they were all Dutch citizens," he said.
"I am a naturalised Australian with no dual citizenship issues. I came to Australia in 1991 and became an Australian citizen in 1997 and lost my Dutch citizenship as declared in my statutory declaration to the AEC."
The AEC said individual candidates are responsible for redacting, omitting or deleting information they do not want published on its website.

Only if the Electoral Commissioner believes material is unreasonable, unacceptable, inappropriate or offensive does the AEC omit, redact or delete information candidates send it, the AEC said.
Dual citizenship and other constitutional issues claimed the scalps of 17 members and senators in the previous parliament.
New rules introduced make it mandatory for all candidates to declare their eligibility and have their forms published by the AEC.
