No women on Tasmanian Liberal Senate ticket for 2016

Tasmania's Acting Premier is urging the Liberal Party's administration to do more to increase female representation at the federal level. 

Acting Premier, Jeremy Rockliff has also not rejected the idea of a quota to address an imbalance. 

The party has been criticised after the Tasmanian branch failed to select any women in the six spots on the Senate ballot paper for this year's election.

Key points:

  • Calls for Liberals to reform Senate selection process
  • Academic Kate Crowley wants quotas set
  • Jeremy Rockliff says it's up to party administration
  • Speaker Elise Archer says it's not just a Liberal issue
