Peris, still just a celebrity pick
Senior Labor MP Chris Evans has defended Prime Minister Julia Gillards decision to personally elevate Olympian Nova Peris to the number one spot on the Labor Northern Territory Senate ticket.
Ms Gillard wants Ms Peris to become the first indigenous woman in the federal parliament, saying she's been troubled about federal Labor's lack of indigenous representation.
This week she used her "captain's pick" to ask the ALP executive to put the former hockey star first on the Senate ticket, ahead of sitting Labor NT Senator Trish Crossin
Her decision sparked criticism that the move circumvented usual party procedures to allow a rank-and-file ballot to decide the matter.
But Senator EVANS has told ABC Radio that Ms Gillard was right to step in because the Labor Party has failed to successfully get an indigenous person elected for federal parliament.
BC Mornings: Julia Gillard has faced criticism over her decision to pick Nova Peris as a Northern Territory Senate candidate in the next federal election.
Aboriginal community worker Sam Watson tells Greg Cary while he respects Nova, he believes someone more experienced needs to run for senate.
Tell me again why it's so important to have a Aboriginal woman in parliment????Nova looks a who lot more Indian than Aboriginal to me??????Westy Monday 28 January, 2013 - 9:04 PM
What has happened to the Labor party?. This party was once the champions of a 'fair go', the champions of workers rights... What about Trish Crossin's rights?. Unfortunately Senator Crossin is just another victim of the Prime Ministers ruthless attempt to cling to power, Senator Crossin was also a supporter of Kevin Rudd, a coincidence... I think NOT.The General Sunday 27 January, 2013 - 8:06 PM
Chris Evans must be kidding. If it is so important to have a indigenous female in patliament, then why doesn't he explain why Marion Scrygmor (who was contesting the senate ticket with Trish Crossin) was over looked?
Marion is an indigenous female but, unlike Nova, she has been very active within the Labor Party for years and served in the Northern Territory parliament for years.
I wish one of you journalists had the courage to ask all these labor politicians to answer that question.
Do not kid yourselves, picking Nova was for the southern and greens votes and had nothing to do with the territory.Real Balance Friday 25 January, 2013 - 2:02 PM
What happened to the unfair dismissal card - this sitting member is just pushed aside (no consultation wih her so she said in an intervies). Fair go - I don't think so!Jude Friday 25 January, 2013 - 8:51 AM
Yes, just a celebrity pick!
Miss Gillard may be hoping to get two or is it three birds with one stone, so to speak.
A Aboriginal and a sports person and a woman!BELLA Thursday 24 January, 2013 - 1:44 PM
