The Greens have demanded the Liberals rethink their preference deal with Clive Palmer after one of his ACT candidate's racist and homophobic views were revealed.
The Facebook account of the United Australia Party's candidate for Bean, Tony Hanley, was deactivated on Friday after the ABC published several of his posts.
Mr Hanley called Saudi Arabians "tea-towel heads" and taxi drivers' children "future terrorists". He also referred to lesbians as "fem-nasties", "dykes" and "big fat fugly chicks". In another post, he said gays, lesbians and transgender people were the "most horrible people ever in my life".
Meanwhile, Mr Hanley's LinkedIn profile says he was named Canberra's citizen of the year in 2013, when the honour was awarded to well-known paediatrician Sue Packham.
Under a national agreement, the Liberal Party and the Mr Palmer-backed UAP are directing their supporters to preference the other party at next weekend's election.
The Greens candidate for the same electorate in Canberra's south, Johnathan Davis, said the Liberals must ditch that deal.
Mr Davis, an openly gay 27-year-old, said he was "particularly distressed" by Mr Hanley's comments.
"A racist, sexist, homophobic and transphobic rant on Facebook is to be expected from a party with no policies, no plan but a lot of money ..." he said on Friday.
"What I find more disappointing is that, from eight candidates, the Liberal Party has decided Tony Hanley is the second-best option to represent the people of Bean."
The Liberals' how-to-vote guide advises voters to order Mr Davis last among the eight people vying for the seat.
Meanwhile, the Labor Party suggests voters preference Mr Hanley ahead of Liberal candidate Ed Cocks.
The United Australia Party did not respond to requests for comment.
However, a Liberal spokesman said the party did not support Mr Hanley's comments and was "encouraging all Canberrans to vote Liberal".
Meanwhile, a Facebook account linked to another UAP candidate in the ACT was also deleted on Friday morning.
The personal page of Glen Hodgson, the candidate for Fenner, disappeared shortly after Mr Hanley's account was deactivated.
