Mark Latham quits Liberal Democrats, by Rosie Lewis.

Mark Latham has quit the Liberal Democrats after he and the minor party failed to agree on his candidacy, triggering speculation he will run for Pauline Hanson’s One Nation if he decides to contest the upcoming federal election.

The former Labor leader confirmed on Facebook he had cancelled his LDP membership following a stalemate over his “possible nomination for political candidacy” with the party.
