Some members of the Australian Labor Party’s New South Wales right faction have expressed concern that Sam Dastyari was pressured into resigning from the Senate. Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has praised Dastyari’s decision to resign in the wake of revelations about his links with China. There is speculation that Dastyari’s seat in the upper house could be filled by Kristina Keneally if she fails to win the upcoming by-election in the seat of Bennelong. United Voice’s Tara Moriarty is also seen as a contender to replace Dastyari.
