Nick Xenophon can stay in Canberra

November 2017

Conservative politician Barnaby Joyce will face a by-election on December 2 after being declared ineligible to sit in Parliament by the High Court.

Mr Joyce's was the biggest scalp claimed by the High Court when it delivered its judgements on the so-called Citizenship Seven on Friday.

One Nation's Malcolm Roberts, the Nationals' Fiona Nash, and former Greens senators Larissa Waters and Scott Ludlam, who had both already stood aside, were also ruled to be ineligible to sit in Parliament because they were dual nationals when they stood for election.

The court has ordered their seats be filled by a special recount of ballots.

Nationals senator Matthew Canavan can remain in Parliament after the court found he was validly elected.

The court also found Senator Nick Xenophon was safe to sit in the Upper House, although he has announced he will leave federal politics to pursue a return to South Australian politics.
