ANMF welcomes new Senators and Members of Parliament
The long election campaign is now over. The ANMF welcomes the new Senators and MPs and is looking forward to a constructive working relationship.
After a very long 8 week winter election campaign, the Coalition was returned with a majority of 1 seat, and a very different Senate was elected.
The ANMF is looking forward to meeting with new and returning MPs and Senators to talk about healthcare, aged care and Medicare.
Minister for Health and Aged Care The Hon Sussan Ley MP
Assistant Minister for Health and Aged Care The Hon Ken Wyatt AM MP
Assistant Minister for Rural Health The Hon Dr David Gillespie M
Shadow Minister for Health and Medicare Hon Catherine King MP
Shadow Assistant Minister for Medicare Tony Zappia MP
Shadow Minister for Ageing and Mental Health Hon Julie Collins MP
Shadow Assistant Minister for Ageing Senator Helen Polley
Despite a double dissolution election, a number of returning and new independent Senators have been elected, which means that the Government will have to gain support from the Greens, or the ALP, or 9 of the other 11 Senators to pass legislation through the Senate.
The final Senate results are as follows:
One Nation 4
Nick Xenophon Team 3
Derryn Hinch 1
Jackie Lambie 1
Family First 1
