Nick Xenophon Announces He'll Quit The Senate To Stand At SA Election

In breaking news, Nick Xenophon has announced that he will resign from the Senate.

It is understood that he will run for the seat of Hartley in the South Australian election.

"I’ve decided that you can’t fix South Australia’s problems in Canberra without first fixing our broken political system back home," Mr Xenophon said.

"Our State politics is broken, politically bankrupt.

"We have the same old soap opera script between Labor and Liberal, but little real policy debate, let alone solutions for the State’s many troubles.

"South Australian politics has been reduced to a triumph of low expectations – where just keeping the lights on over the next summer will be presented by the government as a major achievement to be lauded and applauded. It’s embarrassing."
