William Fraser Anning (born 14 October 1949) is an Australian politician who has been a senator for Queensland since 10 November 2017. Third on the One Nation list in the 2016 Federal Election, he was elected to the Senate after a special recount was triggered by the removal of One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts. Anning chose not to join One Nation in the Senate, sitting instead as an independent until June 2018, when he joined Katter's Australian Party (KAP) as its first senator. Anning was expelled by Bob Katter’s Party in October 2018 for his views on race and immigration. Anning sat again as an independent, until registration of Fraser Anning's Conservative National Party was granted in April 2019. He failed to get re-elected to the Senate in the 2019 Federal Election, when standing under his own party’s banner. His term will end on 30 June 2019.
