Tania Mikhailuk sacked from Labor Shadow Cabinet after late-night political attack

New South Wales Labor MP Tania Mihayluk has been removed from the shadow cabinet after taking advantage of parliamentary privileges Attack your party on Tuesday night.

In a freak late-night speech delivered to parliament, Mikhailuk accused Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Karl Asfour of having an affair with corrupt former minister Eddie Obeid.

Asfour is a Labor candidate who will run for the party’s Senate seat in the March elections.

Bankstown MP Mikhailuk said in a speech that if Mr Ashoor continued to support the party, the consequences would be disastrous for his party, and he had no choice but to attack his own party.

Speaking to 2GB on Friday morning, Labor leader Chris Minns revealed that he had notified Mihailuk that her position in the shadow cabinet was no longer supportable.

“I spoke with Tania Mikhailuk and said she could not stay in the shadow cabinet and launch political attacks with her parliamentary privileges,” he said.

“There are correct ways to present information about potential or suspected illegal activity, and using parliamentary privilege at 11:30 p.m. in the NSW Parliament is not one of them,” he said.

Sydney’s south-west has witnessed bitter internal strife within the Labor Party over the primaries, as the border redistribution eliminated the Lakemba seat and forced Labor MPs, including Mihayluk, to move seats.
