Ludlam wins Senate seat

THE Greens have claimed Western Australia’s sixth Senate seat, taking to five the number of senators it will have in the federal parliament. Scott Ludlam will join Greens senators Sarah Hansen-Young, Bob Brown, Rachel Siewert and Christine Milne in taking his seat on July 1 when the new Senate is sworn in. “I am over the moon,” Mr Ludlam said. “It is a very exciting time to be entering federal parliament, there is a lot of change in the air after 11 years of the Howard government.” Mr Ludlam has worked for Senator Siewert, also from WA, since 2005. He was formerly the proprietor of a small graphic design business, and undertook a degree in sustainability policy to compliment his research work for former Greens state parliamentarian, Robin Chapple. The six WA senators elected last month are Liberals David Johnston, Alan Eggleston and Michaelia Cash, Labor’s Louise Pratt and Mark Bishop, and Mr Ludlam.
