Federal MP Alex Hawke avoids expulsion from NSW Liberals


Hundreds of NSW Liberal members gathered at the Fullerton Hotel in Sydney on Saturday, February 24, to hold their annual Council event.

During the day’s proceedings, one of the key topics discussed was the motion to expel the former immigration minister and Federal MP Alex Hawke.

This motion was proposed after Mr Hawke was accused of failing to attend nomination review committee meetings before the 2022 federal election.

His lack of attendance then led to a delay to preselections in Farrer and North Sydney, which caused a federal intervention to take place where a three-person panel then had to handpick nine candidates.

Mr Hawke, however, survived the attempted expulsion on Saturday.

This was thanks to his Centre Right faction securing support from the Moderates, notable because those two groupings usually don’t get along.
