The new year could bring with it an early Tasmanian election, with the island state's premier refusing to rule out a trip to the ballot box ahead of the scheduled 2018 poll.

Labor opposition leader Bryan Green on Friday said his team will start 2017 ready to fight an election against the first-term Liberal administration after Premier Will Hodgman's recent comments.

"I'm not in the business of completely never saying never, but our plan is to run full term, that's what we are committed to doing," the premier said when asked about bringing forward the election which is currently due in March 2018.
