Senator the Hon Nick Minchin

Minister for Finance and Administration Leader of the Government in the Senate

Media Release

47/2007 5 June 2007

Mary Jo Fisher

I welcome the decision of the South Australian Liberal Party’s Appeal Tribunal to reject the appeal against the preselection of Mary Jo Fisher as the candidate to replace Amanda Vanstone in the Senate.

I look forward to Mary Jo Fisher now being appointed by the SA State Parliament to fill the Senate casual vacancy and to her being sworn in as a SA Liberal Senator on Tuesday 12 June.

Mary Jo Fisher is extremely well-qualified to serve as a SA Senator, and will be a very valuable addition to the Coalition Senate team.
