Johnston has no policies

THE father of former US vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s grandson, Levi Johnston, said he had no policies as he seeks to be elected mayor of Wasilla, Alaska — a role Palin once filled.

Johnston was grilled on US TV show The View about his mayoral ambitions.

In August, Johnston’s manager confirmed his plans to run for the office as part of a reality TV show and insisted he was serious about it.

Johnston said the only real qualification is to live in the city limits for a year before the election.

He believes he is as qualified as any other candidate, saying he believes it is important to listen to the people and their concerns.

Johnston said he has no platform, which drew groans from the pundits on the show.
