Enoch first female Aboriginal MP of Qld

WITH the final results of last weekend’s Queensland election still hanging in the balance one thing is certain: the Sunshine State will have two Aboriginal MPs. Labor’s Leeanne Enoch, a Nunukul/Nughi woman from North Stradbroke Island, won the south Brisbane seat of Algester, making her Queensland’s first female Aboriginal MP. And the ALP’s Billy Gordon won the northern seat of Cook.
