Posted on: Thu 27 Jul 2017
Another Minister, this time LNP Senator Matt Canavan, has been found to be holding dual citizenship.
He has since stepped down from his cabinet position but has not quit the senate, and plans to fight fro his right to stay in the High Court.
Ben Eltham, National Affairs Correspondent for New Matilda, joined Jennie Lenman to speak about the ongoing relevance of Section 44 which states a politician cannot hold dual citizenship.
They also discussed the proposed plan by Bill Shorten for four year fixed terms and the failing Murray-Darling Basin plan.
