One Nation senator Rod Culleton resigns from party

The ABC’s Dan Conifer reports (19.12.16) that ‘West Australian senator Rod Culleton has stormed out of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party, saying he has been subjected to “public rants” and “un-Australian behaviour”.

‘Tensions within the minor party have been bubbling for weeks, as Senators Hanson and Culleton engaged in a running skirmish through the media.

‘”Personal attacks and undermining, un-Australian behaviour towards myself and my team, has been ongoing,” Senator Culleton said in a statement.

‘”[Pauline Hanson’s] public rants against me have also been accompanied by demands for my resignation and control over diaries, office management and staffing. The irrational dictates have caused only disunity and distrust”.

‘The Western Australian senator said he intended to stay in the Senate as an independent.’
