The One Nation senator Pauline Hanson has been written into her party’s updated constitution as effective president for life.
With no term limits on her presidency, the constitution names Hanson as leader of the party’s national executive as well as the registered officer for its divisions, giving her considerable heft, News Corp reported.
“The president of the party is Pauline Lee Hanson,” the constitution now states. “Upon resigning from the position of president, Pauline Lee Hanson shall appoint her successor to become the next president of the party.”
Malcolm Turnbull has assured Australians that his party will not repeat the mistakes of Labor and will instead use a ‘thoroughly Liberal’ methodology for destabilising themselves from within.
At the end of a week of in-fighting, Mr Turnbull said he was confident the issues would be dealt with in an open, laissez-faire way. “I’m a strong believer in the market system, as are my colleagues,” Mr Turnbull said today.
“So we won’t be repeating the mistakes of Labor; we won’t be going down that path. Our process for ripping ourselves to pieces will instead be more efficient, more agile, and a much better use of resources”.
Australian values are an entirely subjective thing, writes Michael Brull.
