I call on the Commonwealth Government to enact a First Nations Voice in the Australian Constitution. In light of Australian history and the subordination and mistreatment of First Nations people, it is imperative for First Nations Australians to have their own representation and Voice as part of our Government. I call on the Morrison Government to honour its promise of a referendum, once the model for the Voice has been decided. I further call on the Government to pass enabling legislation following the Referendum. It is important that all First Nations Australians be eligible to be elected as part of the Voice structure. Australia needs to have its First Nations people actively participating in our electoral system and government structures.
