We can work Xenophon replacement: PM

October 08, 2017

Malcolm Turnbull expects his government will be able to work with whoever replaces Nick Xenophon.

The Nick Xenophon Team will eventually have a name change with its namesake leaving the Senate, although its sitting members apparently like the brand.

"I've always said that it needs to transition to something other than the Nick Xenophon team," Nick Xenophon told Sky News on Sunday after his shock announcement last week he would be stepping down as a senator to stand in next year's South Australian state election.

He said while he would not be in Canberra, he would still be involved in federal policy decisions.
