Chief Minister backs new Federal Senate team


The Chief Minister has weighed in on the results of the ACT Senate Race.

Andrew Barr congratulated both Katy Gallagher and David Pocock for being elected.

Mr Pocock ran on the issues of action on climate change, a national integrity commission, Territory rights and better representation for the ACT in the Senate, something the Chief Minister said was clearly important for Canberrans

In his statement Mr Barr wished former Liberal Senator Zed Seselja the best for what comes next.
