After his first day in parliament, new Motoring Enthusiast Party Senator Ricky Muir has been listed as Chief Government Whip in the Senate.
It’s a mistake on a government directory and while it isn’t true his office has had a good laugh about it.
Muir’s spokesperson, Glenn Druery, confirmed it was a mistake but told Business Insider: “I’ll take it”.
It’s understood the mistake could have been made when the system was updated after outgoing Victorian Senator Helen Kroger, who was the chief government whip, was taken off the registry.
