One Nation’s Malcolm Roberts to make return to Senate

Controversial former One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts is set to make a return to Federal Parliament after securing a Queensland Senate seat.

Counting for Senate seats in Queensland has finally wrapped up with Mr Roberts securing the fourth seat out six that were up for grabs.

Mr Roberts was forced to quit his Senate seat in December 2017 after being caught up in the citizenship saga.


The High Court found he didn’t renounce his British citizenship when he first nominated for the Senate.

He then unsuccessfully ran for the State seat of Ipswich in the 2017 Queensland election.

In a post on Facebook, Mr Roberts thanked people for their support and patience while the count was taking place.

The LNP secured three Queensland Senate seats with Paul Scarr, Susan McDonald and Gerard Rennick all heading to Canberra.

Labor only managed one Senate seat following their disastrous election result in the Sunshine State.

The Greens’ Larissa Waters has also been returned.
