SYDNEY: A con­sti­tu­tional cri­sis roil­ing Aussie pol­i­tics claimed a new vic­tim yes­ter­day with the res­ig­na­tion of the eighth law­maker to be felled by a once-ob­scure rule bar­ring dual cit­i­zens from fed­eral of­fice. The de­par­ture of Jac­qui Lam­bie, an in­de­pen­dent se­na­tor from Tas­ma­nia, comes af­ter Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull’s gov­ern­ment lost its grip on par­lia­ment as MPs were top­pled by the cit­i­zen­ship is­sue. Lam­bie told MPs she had just learned she held Bri­tish na­tion­al­ity from her Scot­tish grand­fa­ther and fa­ther. – AFP
