Timeline of Nick McKim
McKim was re-elected to the Senate at the 2019 federal election where he received 12.4% of the state’s vote, with a swing of 1.41% in his favour.
The issue of Nick McKim’s citizenship was raised during the 2017–18 Australian parliamentary eligibility crisis while he was a sitting senator. McKim applied to renounce his UK citizenship by filling out the renunciation form (RN) on the 31st of July 2015. The form was received by the British Home Office on the 14th of August 2015, further received for processing on the 4th of September 2015, and formally registered on the 1st of February 2016. The Home Office citizenship renunciation guidelines state that a person will cease being a British citizen after the date of registration.
Because McKim’s RN form was not registered until the 1st of February 2016, he maintained dual citizenship while serving as a senator, in breach of the Australian constitution, from the 20th of August 2015 (when he was sworn in as the retiring Christine Milne’s replacement) until the 1st of February 2016, a period of just over 5 months. Since nominations for the 2016 federal election occurred after McKim’s citizenship was formally renounced, he was not in breach of section 44(i) when nominating for that election.
After Christine Milne’s resignation from the senate, McKim was announced to be one of the 10 Greens members vying to replace her. The ballot, open to Greens members, was held in July 2015.
The Tasmanian Greens announced at a press conference on 30 July 2015 that McKim had won the membership ballot to replace Christine Milne in the Senate. He resigned from the Tasmanian Parliament on 4 August, and a countback was conducted to elect Rosalie Woodruff as his replacement on 17 August. McKim was appointed to the Senate by a joint sitting of the Tasmanian Parliament on 19 August 2015. Unlike other Greens Senators, Senator McKim has had ministerial experience due to him having been a minister in the previous Tasmanian ALP Government whilst as State Greens leader.
On 16 January 2014, the premier, Lara Giddings, announced that the power sharing arrangement with the Tasmanian Greens was over, and that McKim and O’Connor would be replaced by Labor MPs effective on 17 January. She said that the ALP would not govern with Greens in the cabinet in future.
McKim was re-elected to the House of Assembly at the 2014 Tasmanian State Election with 13.4% of the primary vote.
As a minister, McKim originally held the portfolios of Sustainable Transport and Alternative Energy, Corrections and Consumer Protection, Climate Change, Human Services, and Community Development: though he delegated responsibility for the portfolios of Human Services and Community Development to fellow Greens MP and then cabinet secretary Cassy O’Connor. After a Cabinet reshuffle in November 2010 the portfolios of human services and community development were formally assumed by newly appointed Greens minister Cassy O’Connor, whilst McKim was sworn in as minister for the newly created Aboriginal Affairs portfolio alongside his other three portfolios. Another Cabinet reshuffle, caused by Lin Thorp losing her seat in the Tasmanian Legislative Council elections and David Bartlett resigning from the assembly, then saw McKim sworn in on 13 May 2011 as Minister for Education and Skills, whilst retaining the three portfolios of corrections, consumer protection and sustainable transport. McKim was responsible for overseeing the closing of the Hayes Prison Farm and the removal of Flex Learning for prisoners as Minister for both portfolio areas of Education and Corrections.
In the 2010 Tasmanian election McKim achieved 24.1% of first preferences in his lower house seat. On 19 April 2010, Labor premier David Bartlett agreed to appoint McKim as a minister along with Cassy O’Connor as cabinet secretary.
In July 2009, McKim confirmed he was in a relationship with Cassy O’Connor, also a Tasmanian Greens Member of the House of Assembly.
McKim supported the government in passing the same sex relationships bill (which recognises same sex relationships in Tasmania under common law) and has promoted the Greens’ own Same-Sex Marriage Bill. During 2008, he campaigned against the use of 1080 poison, forestry practices and the state’s anti-terrorism bill.
Elected to Tasmanian House of Assembly in the Division of Franklin at the 2002 election, McKim was re-elected at the 2006 election, receiving 15.93 per cent of first preferences, an increase compared to his previous vote of 12.59%. He replaced Peg Putt as Leader of the Tasmanian Greens when Putt retired from Parliament in 2008.
McKim served time in prison after being arrested during the Farmhouse Creek Blockade in the early 1980s.
