Pauline Hanson sacks Mark Latham

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has sacked Mark Latham as leader of the parliamentary party in NSW due to poor results in the state election this year.

In a Facebook post, Latham called Hanson’s decision “bizarre” and said he intended to defy the decision and remain as leader.

“If she is worried about under-performance, her best solution is to buy a mirror,” he said.

Latham, a former federal Labor leader, is a member of the NSW Upper House.

He is currently being sued for defamation by Independent NSW MP Alex Greenwich for a homophobic slur. Hanson publicly criticised the slur.
