Section 44 Claims Another Senator

Thursday 20th July / presented by Chris Mason

This week has see the forced resignation of two Greens senators for holding dual citizenships.

Now former Greens senators and Party Co-Leaders Scott Ludlam and Larissa Waters are out of jobs.

Section 44.1 of the Australian Constitution is the reason for their demise, as it dictates that anyone with citizenship to another country other than Australia is ineligible to be an elected member of Parliament.

So now we ask, how can this happen and are other current politicians affected?

Murdoch University political commentator Dr Ian Cook joined The Mag to shed some light.
