Return of Senator Molan

Jim Molan AO has been chosen by the Parliament of New South Wales to fill a casual vacancy caused by the resignation of Senator Arthur Sinodinos.

Nov 25, 2019

Senator Molan initially filled a vacancy in 2017 caused by the disqualification of Senator Fiona Nash, who was found to be ineligible to be a member of parliament according to section 44 of the Australian Constitution. He was unsuccessful at the 2019 federal election, but will now fill the seat left vacant by Senator Sinodinos, who has left Parliament to take up a post as Australia’s ambassador to the United States.
