Popular Tasmanian Labor senator Lisa Singh has again been dropped to what is considered to be an unwinnable spot on the party’s senate ticket.
Sitting members Carol Brown and Catryna Bilyk are first and second on the ticket, followed by John Short and Lisa Singh.
But she will need many more in the half-Senate election.
Ms Singh, who is not aligned with either the left or right faction of the Labor Party, said she had borne the brunt of the party machinations.
“It’s no secret that factional arrangements are put in place often in these types of preselections and when that happens and you’re not part of that factional arrangement you can end up losing out,” she said.
She said she had proven people wrong before and could still win from that position.
