Ebene News – AU – Government in minority after Ellis leaves Libs

The shocking resignation of South Australian MP Fraser Ellis from the Liberal Party following an investigation into travel rorts has left the state government in a minority

M Ellis told parliament in the early hours of Friday morning that he was suspending party membership because he was under investigation by the state’s corruption watchdog

“I am completely innocent and will vigorously defend these allegations to the best of my ability and the law

Narungga MP says he will sit on the bench while he fights the charges

Opposition Leader Peter Malinauskas took to Twitter on Friday to ask why, if Prime Minister Steven Marshall was already aware of the investigation, it had been kept under wraps

The anti-corruption watchdog last year launched an investigation into whether state government deputies have misappropriated travel allowances over the past decade
