Australian Govt loses majority after court ruling

30 October 2017, 01:58 | Marta Robbins

It's business as usual in Australian government, Malcolm Turnbull says

Labor says it has legal advice that Barnaby Joyce's decisions could be challenged if he is found ineligible

"I would like to apologise for the inconvenience that will happen by reason of having a by-election, which we will go to nearly immediately".

Here's what he said to the media in his home town of Tamworth, directly after the High Court decision.

Joyce was born in Australia but had New Zealand citizenship through his father.

Mr Joyce admitted the ruling did not come as a complete shock.

The court's decision means the government loses its one-seat majority in the lower House of Representatives as it awaits the by-election for Mr. Joyce's seat in December.

Barnaby Joyce, the combative deputy to Malcolm Turnbull, the prime minister, was thrown out of parliament on Friday because of a 116-year-old constitutional ban on dual citizens being elected to parliament.

It's expected he will win after his main challenger, former independent MP Tony Windsor, announced he would not be running.

Cam Newton stormed out of another press conference
He abruptly left the podium during a press conference in 2016 after a 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos at Super Bowl 50. The statement merely says that Cam didn't intentionally ignore or try to show up any members of the media.

The opposition has received legal and parliamentary advice on a range of decisions which could be challenged after the High Court disqualified Mr Joyce and Ms Nash from parliament.

"That's why standing down is the wisest course", he said.

Mr Joyce gestured at the New England countryside around him.

'We won the last election because the National Party didn't go backwards, we actually went forwards, we held all our seats and won one (more),' he told ABC radio on Monday.

"I just think that people should be reminded of that and if they really have a strong view of something, put your name to it".

The Australian constitution bans dual citizens...

The deputy prime minister is the main casualty, after being found to have held dual citizenship when he ran for election.
