NT's Indigenous female senator to quit politics

Aboriginal Labor senator Nova Peris is stepping down from the senate and looks likely to become the AFL’s new head of diversity.
Senator Peris, who became the first Aboriginal Australian to win an Olympic gold medal as a member of the women’s hockey team at the 1996 Olympics, has just announced she’s quitting politics at the double dissolution election on July 2.
