OUTSPOKEN senator Pauline Hanson has blasted the appointmen­t of new Australia Post boss Paul Graham.

The Woolworths executive replaces Christine Holgate who last year resigned as chief executive officer following revelation­s that senior leaders were gifted expensive Cartier watches.

The One Nation leader said the announceme­nt, one day before a probe into the circumstan­ces leading to Ms

Holgate being stood down, undermined the inquiry.

“Scott Morrison is attempting to deliberate­ly destabilis­e witnesses ahead of tomorrow’s Senate inquiry,” Senator Hanson said.

Senator Hanson pushed for the inquiry – where Ms Holgate will give evidence on Tuesday – after “contradict­ing evidence” was provided by chairman Lucio Di Bartolomeo.
