Her sister Judy Smith could be set to replace Queensland One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts if it's deemed that he is ineligible to de elected due to dual citizenship. He revealed this week that he held dual citizenship with Britain when he was elected, as the dual citizenship problem continues to shake up Australian politics.
Ms Smith has described herself as one of Ms Hanson's biggest supporters and is a likely candidate to replace Mr Roberts, the Herald Sun reports.
In recent weeks, two Greens politicians resigned from Parliament after it was revealed they held dual citizenship. Liberal national MP Matt Canavan is also being questioned about his citizenship, as he holds dual citizenship with Italy but claims that he did not consent to arranging the citizenship.
