But wait...there's more: The ongoing complexities of section 44(I)

Abstract

This article discusses a number of unexplored aspects of section 44(i) and highlights some potential scenarios that may arise. In particular, the paper explores the possibility that as many as 26 Parliamentarians in the 45th Australian Parliament may be disqualified because of their status as Commonwealth citizens with the right of abode in the United Kingdom. The paper also considers the term ‘foreign power’ under section 44(i) in the context of territories with disputed statehood.
