Coalition ‘rogue’ crosses floor in ‘act of defiance’ against government

Two Queensland Coalition senators voted against their party in a motion calling for the government to bring home Australians stranded in India. 

“Matt Canavan, he’s a rogue, and Gerard Rennick, in an act of defiance against their own government’s policy, crossed the floor to vote on part of a Labor motion,” Neil Breen said.

“It’s not really the done thing, is it?”

Senator Canavan has previously opposed the government’s policies, having opposed the suspension of repatriation flights in a Tweet on May 3.

The motion passed with a majority of 28 to 23 despite India repatriation flights resuming tomorrow.
