The Country Liberal party (CLP) has narrowly defeated a Labor motion supporting the creation of an anti-corruption commission in the Northern Territory, similar to ICAC in New South Wales.
The motion had the support of the three independents as well as Robyn Lambley, who announced her acrimonious resignation from the ruling CLP earlier on Wednesday.
The vote was split at 12-12, but under parliamentary rules that meant the negative won.
Speaker Kezia Purick did not vote.
