Lambie, who first entered the senate in 2013 as a member of Clive Palmer's Palmer United Party, left, and was re-elected as an independent senator past year.

Whether a local council position is an "office of profit under the Crown" - a ground for disqualification under the constitution - has been a grey area in constitutional law.
