    Under section 44 of the constitution, members of Parliament can't hold citizenship of another country. In December it emerged that Ms Gallagher was a dual citizen by descent through her English-born father Charles Gallagher when nominating for the Senate.

    In light of the High Court ruling, Labor MPs Susan Lamb, Justine Keay and Josh Wilson, as well as South Australian crossbench MP Rebekha Sharkie announced their resignations, but all said they would recontest their seats.

    I could solve this issue - make me the benevolent dictator of Australia.

    Deportations will commence immediately.

    Camps for Alt-Righters and New-Ageists will immediately be constructed.

    I think its probably still worth considering addressing this issue at the next federal election. Yesh referendums dont pass a lot in Australia but if the public were like no foreigners in Parliament at least it would be pretty clear that the Australian public interpret the constitution to forbid people who have citizenship by descent even if they have never chosen to take advantage of it (or known about it even)

    Yes, it would seem their processes are as equally poor as that of the coalition.

    Hopefully Barnaby has recinded young Sebashgen's NZ citizenship in case he desires a career in Australian politics down the track.
