SENATOR THE HON. ERIC ABETZ LIBERAL SENATOR FOR TASMANIA

MEDIA RELEASE

07 February 2017

Senator Bernardi

I am disappointed to see Senator Bernardi leave the Liberal Party.

I can understand the frustration of some of my colleagues who are anxious to ensure that, for the future of our party and our nation, that we continue to champion the values and beliefs espoused by Sir Robert Menzies in the We Believe statement.

The Liberal Party has always been bigger than any individual and irrespective of the Parliamentary membership of the party from time to time, the Liberal Party continues to be the shining light for conservatism in Australia.

With more than a million voters who left the Liberal Party at the last election for more conservative minor parties, it is critical that we reembrace those Australians who instinctively support our cause but who found it difficult to give us their vote at the last election.

I’ll continue to work closely with the Liberal Party membership around Australia to ensure that the membership is well represented in Canberra.
