Laws like this are, quite frankly, stupid.
Just because your parent was an immigrant, and you still hold the privilege and benefit of being a dual citizen, doesn’t mean you are any less qualified to serve as a politician.
As Australia becomes more multicultural, you’re going to end up with more and more cases like this.
And cases like this are going to result in costly by-elections.
So as well as make just general sense to repeal the law, it also makes economic sense to repeal the law.
Hopefully Australia will do that soon.
