Mr Dastyari was forced to quit parliament over his controversial dealings with Chinese donors.

Ms Keneally said she was keen to champion Indigenous rights, as well as better funding for research into pregnancy loss and stillbirth.

Ahead of her swearing in, Liberal senator Zed Seselja said every duly elected senator deserved due respect.
