Gay Star News reports:
Malcolm Turnbull – Australia’s Communication Minister and leader of the Liberal Party while in Opposition from 2008 to 2009 – has said he believes his party room will allow a conscience vote on same-sex marriage. However the MP for what is considered Australia’s gayest electorate said he did not know whether there were enough supporters in the Australian Parliament for a bill to pass. ‘As to whether there would be a majority in favour of same-sex marriage in the House of Representatives and the Senate, I don’t know,’ he told Network Ten.
It’s sad that Australia’s support for marriage equality is in the mid-60%’s, but Parliament may not be able to scrounge up enough votes to pass it.
