One Nation senator Peter Georgiou says he voted against the Ensuring Integrity Bill because its public interest test was intended to block a merger between the construction and maritime unions that had already been approved. The bill failed to pass the upper house after dissent among the three One Nation senators prompted the party to vote against it. Meanwhile, former One Nation senator Fraser Anning says he had forecast in late 2017 that Georgiou and senator Brian Burston will leave One Nation within 12 months. Anning has joined Katter’s Australian Party, after sitting as an independent since November.
