Citizenship saga: Senator Jacqui Lambie could be the next to leave Parliament

Citizenship saga: Senator Jacqui Lambie could be the next to leave Parliament

If it's found that Senator Lambie held United Kingdom citizenship by descent and failed to renounce it before entering Parliament, she would likely be found ineligible to sit in the Senate.

The Senator quoted her father's advice that "you can't keep a bloody Lambie down" and has said that she will "have another swing at it".

"That spot is his", she said, adding that she would consider contesting the seat of Braddon if Labor MP Justine Keay is eliminated by her own citizenship concerns. "I would never do that". He said no one was ever bored every time Lambie talks in the Senate. But changing the constitution requires all registered voters to cast ballots in a referendum, which rarely succeeds. The National Barnaby Joyce is running in his seat of New England after being ruled ineligible by the high court.

The ABC asked whether Senator Lambie or her father had renounced any rights to British citizenship, which were not addressed.

Earlier Monday, the government said it would invite the High Court to disqualify at least two opposition lawmakers from Parliament if they did not follow Alexander's example by quitting over questions about whether they renounced British citizenship in time to legally run for election previous year. The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) is also expected to hold a special Tasmanian senate recount to determine her replacement.

Last week, the Tasmanian told the ABC she was satisfied she had "no concerns" about being a dual citizen because of her father.

But soon after they married and moved from Texas to New Mexico, he became abusive and even sexually assaulted her, she said. Around that same time , Kelley was charged with assaulting Brennaman and her child from a previous relationship.

Lambie's departure comes after the Senate on Monday night approved the new disclosure system, created to prevent a repeat of the citizenship fiasco.

Labor and the Coalition came to an agreement yesterday that would result in politicians being required to disclose their citizenship status to the parliament by December 1, the heritage of their parents and grandparents, and disclose what they have done to renounce any citizenship entitlements.

Many argue that the dual citizen ban is increasingly inappropriate for a migrant nation where half the population is an immigrant or has an immigrant parent.

"Then the House can consider them and then, if they wish, refer people to the High Court", he said.

The register was approved on the voices after amendments moved by the Greens and the crossbench were rejected.
