Greens senator quits federal parliament

Greens senator Scott Ludlam is leaving federal parliament after finding out he was improperly elected more than a decade ago.

The party's co-deputy leader recently discovered that he holds dual citizenship with New Zealand.

Under section 44 of the constitution, that makes him ineligible to hold office.

If he was incorrectly elected, does that mean that every vote he made is invalid? Does that mean that every piece of legislation has to be assessed as to whether his vote carried the bill? Also, does he need to repay his salary and what happens to his super?
