Senator re­signs over dual cit­i­zen­ship

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

A pop­u­lar senator for the Aus­tralian Greens Party, Scott Lud­lam, re­signed from the Se­nate on Fri­day, af­ter the rev­e­la­tion that he is a dual cit­i­zen of Aus­tralia and New Zealand. This is in breach of the Aus­tralian Con­sti­tu­tion which stip­u­lates that a per­son who is a cit­i­zen of a for­eign power is in­ca­pable of be­ing cho­sen as a senator, or mem­ber of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, in the coun­try. Lud­lam was born in New Zealand and moved to Aus­tralia at 9.
