Australia: Young Liberals Call for Marriage Equality Conscience Vote

Written by scott on February 2nd, 2013

Sydney, Australia Opera HouseThe Liberal Party’s youth wing wants the party to allow members to vote their consciences instead of the party line on marriage equality, Gay Star News reports:

Australian advocates for marriage equality have welcomed support from today’s federal Young Liberals Conference for a conscience vote for all Liberal senators and MPs, saying it increases pressure on opposition leader Tony Abbott to allow all his MPs to vote according to their personal beliefs. At the Young Liberal federal conference in Hobart this afternoon a motion from the Victorian division in favor of a conscience vote gained two-thirds support.

As always, it’s the younger folks leading the way on equality.
