An­ning has lo­cal fans

NewsMail - - NEWS -

NEWLY minted Queens­land senator Fraser An­ning has at least two fans in the re­gion.

Senator An­ning, who was sworn in on Mon­day to re­place dual cit­i­zen Mal­colm Roberts, re­ceived 19 be­low-the-line votes at the 2016 elec­tion.

Two of them were made lo­cally, at Bund­aberg Cen­tral and Gin Gin.

Senator An­ning was third on One Na­tion’s ticket but is sit­ting as an in­de­pen­dent af­ter fall­ing out with party leader Pauline Han­son.

He was elected be­cause of the way se­nate votes and pref­er­ences are counted.
