ABSTAINED – Matters of Urgency - Victoria: Election - Condemn premier

The majority voted against a motion introduced by Queensland Senator Pauline Hanson (One Nation), which means it failed.

Motion text

That, in the opinion of the Senate, the following is a matter of urgency:

The need for the Senate to condemn the Premier of Victoria, Dan Andrews, for his office's dealings and association with Glenn Druery who, it was reported this morning, admitted to using his position in a Senator's office for personal financial gain; and—in light of revelations upper house group voting tickets are being used to mislead voters to the unethical benefit of the Andrews Labor Government—to affirm the Senate's support for free and fair elections with integrity.
