Additional Liberal Party senator: Senator Julian McGauran was elected to the Senate from Victoria at the 2004 Senate election as a National Party senator. He resigned from the National Party and sat in the Senate as a member of the Liberal Party from 3 February 2006. This increases the 'Seats held' by the Liberal Party in the Senate by one, with a corresponding loss of any National Party representation in the Senate from Victoria.
