In a stunning press conference held today Acting Opposition Leader Michael Daley has announced that Labor is planning on bringing a vote to remove Wagga MP Daryl Maguire from parliament if he doesn’t resign before the August parliamentary return.

Legislative Assembly Standing Order 294 reads ‘A member adjudged by the House guilty of conduct unworthy of a Member of Parliament may be expelled by vote of the House, and the seat declared vacant’ which would pave the way for a by-election in Wagga.

Both the Labor Party, with Dan Hayes, and the Shooters, Fishers, and Farmers Party have confirmed that they would contest the seat, and in the event of a by-election it would open up the opportunity for the National Party to enter a candidate as well.
