Another Australian cabinet minister faces disqualification

Another Australian cabinet minister faces disqualification

When Section 44 was written, in 1891, New Zealand was not considered a foreign power, as both Australia and New Zealand came under the dominion of the British monarch.

Similarly to Joyce, Nash was born in Australia but holds dual citizenship through descent, with both politicians claiming they were unaware.

"We need to make sure that every decision taken by this Parliament.is absolutely above board, that it retains the confidence of the Australian people and that we can get about rebuilding faith in politics and our political institutions", Senator Bernardi told reporters in Canberra.

Six Australian senators are waiting for confirmation on whether they can continue in the country's Upper House, and the High Court will have to make rulings on each of them. Travel records show the elder Xenophou travelled to Australia in 1951 as a British citizen, the ABC reports.

The prime minister is a former lawyer, who in 1987 gained worldwide prominence in the so-called Spycatcher case, when he successfully defended a British expatriate's right to publish a book on his history in MI5.

Support for Trump's impeachment rises to 40% among Americans
Thursday, President Trump called efforts and rallies to remove Confederate statues across the country, "so foolish". He brought up the KKK's terrorist acts, including the assassination of MS civil rights icon Medgar Evers in 1963.

Along with Xenophon and Nash, the freaky mess around section 44 of the constitution has ensnared deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce, One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts and Nationals senator Matt Canavan.

"You let it go to the High Court, that is what you do". Mr Canavan quit his cabinet position last month when he fell victim to the scandal.

The response from Mr Dunne is due on Thursday.

Nash said that based on advice from the solicitor-general she does not resign from the ministry.

Crossbench senators including Nick Xenophon have called for an independent audit of all federal parliamentarians to identify potential dual citizens.

Mr Joyce is the fifth Australian MP to have their citizenship questioned since last month, following senators Scott Ludlam, Larissa Waters, Matthew Canavan and Malcolm Roberts.

A sixth Australian MP will have her eligibility for office decided by the nation's High Court on Friday over the issue of dual citizenship, the media reported.

"I was advised that a case worker at the United Kingdom home office was of the view that on the basis of the limited facts I had provided, I was a British citizen by descent through my Scottish-born father", she told the Senate late Thursday.

Constitutional law experts on Tuesday said Joyce was in "difficulty" after New Zealand Prime Minister Bill English confirmed "unwittingly or not" Joyce was a citizen of New Zealand.

"My parents divorced when I was eight and my mother raised me", she said.

Senator Nash said she made her own inquiries with the UK Home Office on Monday, following Mr Joyce's statement regarding his citizenship.

Under Section 44 (i) of the constitution, any person who is "under any acknowledgment of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign power, or is a subject or a citizen or entitled to the rights or privileges of a subject or a citizen of a foreign power. shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a member of the House of Representatives".
