One Nation leader Pauline Hanson is about to announce a "game-changing move" in her party's quest to win the upcoming Queensland election.

Ms Hanson has vowed to reveal a shake-up in Queensland politics on Friday morning as speculation mounts about when the government will call the election, due by early 2018.

The outspoken senator says the plan involves bolstering her candidates, but there's reports she will name a state leader for her party.

"I can't fix this country and the state of Queensland on my own, so tomorrow (Friday) I'm wheeling out plans to bolster my troops, ready for the state election," she said in a statement.

"Get set Queensland. Pauline Hanson's One Nation is in this next state election to win government."

In flagging Friday's announcement on the Sunshine Coast, Ms Hanson listed a series of concerns relayed to her by regional Queenslanders and said she's spent the week visiting the regions to ensure those living outside the southeast "have a voice".

On Thursday, Ms Hanson sidestepped talk about a preference deal with the Liberal National Party by saying she's confident One Nation can win government in its own right.

"I owe nothing to the LNP, Labor, the Greens, Katter party, anyone. I owe everything to the people of Queensland that they will get clear, honest policy and direction, and a government that's here for the people."

It comes as speculation begins about when the government will call the election.

A looming redistribution of state electorate boundaries that could favour the LNP has been mooted as a possible early election trigger.

Shadow treasurer Scott Emerson says the community wants certainty.

"They keep talking about early elections; are they thinking about an early election, or will they rule it out?" Mr Emerson said.

However, a government spokesman deflected talk of an early election.

"Scott Emerson still has plenty of time to challenge Tim Nicholls for leadership of the LNP before any election," the spokesman said in a statement.
