Australia news live: Albanese says Indigenous voice won’t be ‘third chamber of parliament’ | Australia news

PM: voice not ‘not a third chamber of the parliament’

Albanese is asked whether he believes the question being proposed is simple enough for Australians to understand what they’re voting for. Albanese says it is a “simple proposition which is consistent with good manners”.

It says where you are implementing a policy that affects a group, in this case the oldest continuous civilisation on the planet, something we should be proud about, you should consult, involve them.

Albanese says the language of the question still leaves parliament the right to set the detail about how the voice to parliament will operate and would not enshrine the body’s power in the constitution “because this is not a third chamber of the parliament”.

This makes it very clear this doesn’t change in any way the primacy of our democratically elected parliament.
