Qld parly endorses Lindgren as Senator


Queensland's parliament has endorsed Joanna Lindgren to fill the state's vacant federal Senate spot.

The Liberal National Party (LNP) preselected Ms Lindgren on Saturday to replace retiring Senator Brett Mason.

"The Labor Government also respects the conventions of our Westminster system and therefore, we will not be opposing the nomination of Ms Lindgren to fill the casual Senate vacancy," Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said after Ms Lindgren was named the sole nominee in parliament on Thursday.
