Skye Kakoschke-Moore to resign from Senate over dual citizenship
Australian bonds gained on Wednesday after Australian senator Skye Kakoschke-Moore resigned from the Parliament after she was confirmed having dual citizen.
The confusion arose, according to media reports of the matter, because Kakoschke-Moore had been under the impression that she could not have been eligible for British citizenship, because she didn't think a parent born outside of the United Kingdom could pass their citizenship on to any children also born outside the country.
"I am heartbroken by this news", she told reporters in Adelaide.
The first-term senator said her mother was born in Singapore in 1957 and migrated to Australia in 1970.
Her father had even made inquiries when the family lived in Oman when she was 12 for getting her a British passport but she was told she was not eligible.
They advised that my mother was born in the former colony of Singapore before independence. "I am therefore a British citizen".
Mr Xenophon resigned from the Senate earlier this year after concerns he could be a dual citizen but was later cleared. She inherited British citizenship from her mother.
Mr Xenophon said a replacement has not yet been determined.
'Based on this advice I will be resigning from the senate today and will be requesting that my matter be referred to the High Court when senate sits next week'.
"I can say that from the preliminary legal advice that I obtained on behalf of Skye that we're in uncharted legal territory as to whether it would be a count back or some other mechanism of dealing with this", he said. The High Court of Australia ruled in October that five lawmakers were ineligible to rule as they held dual citizenships when they were elected in 2016.
Another NXT parliamentarian, Rebekha Sharkie, has also faced questions about her eligibility for Parliament, as she was born in England, The SMH noted.
"I think voters will see that Section 44 has got a much broader scope than anyone could have anticipated", he said.
An Australian senator who is British by descent has become the ninth lawmaker to leave Parliament over a 116-year-old constitutional ban on dual nationals running for office that threatens to bring down the government.
The South Australian vowed to continue in politics, though she said her focus was to run in another federal election, not the upcoming SA poll.
