The Dominion Post - - Politics -

The New Zealand Cross-Party Rain­bow Par­lia­men­tary Net­work has wel­comed the re­sults of the Aus­tralian postal sur­vey on mar­riage equal­ity. In a joint state­ment, cochairs Louisa Wall, Jan Lo­gie, Chris Bishop, and David Sey­mour said ‘‘con­grat­u­la­tions Aus­tralia’’, for the 62 per cent ‘‘yes’’ vote to mar­riage equal­ity, which had a near 80 per cent turnout. The mandate for change was ‘‘over­whelm­ing’’, with an ‘‘em­phatic an­swer to ... the ques­tion about the right of same sex cou­ples to marry,’’ said Wall.
