NT MP slams Labor left for dumping him

May 18, 2018

NT Labor MP Warren Snowdon has vowed to fight the Left faction's decision to dump him.

Long-serving Northern Territory Labor MP Warren Snowdon has criticised the party's left faction, saying it was damaging the party's federal election chances after it dumped him and said it would back another candidate.

"Unseating the Turnbull government is what we should be concentrating on. This is a sideshow," the Lingiari MP told AAP, adding he was determined to stay on.

However, Mr Snowdon was regarded as in danger of losing preselection before a falling out with his left faction, which came to a head at last week's Labor conference in Darwin.
