If Australia Says ‘Yes’ This Is How Our MPs Will Vote


Australia Says Yes

If the Australia electorate says Yes vote tomorrow and tells Parliament they want same-sex marriage to be legalised it will be up to our politicians to sort it out.

So the ABC asked all MPs how they would vote if, as expected, Australia says ‘Yes’.

The list below details all the responses the ABC received by noon yesterday – and the numbers suggest both houses of Parliament would pass a bill to change the law … Upper House 68%; Lower House 70%.

‘Yes’ includes those who are in favour as well as people who are personally against same-sex marriage but who’ve said they will respect the national result of the survey.

‘It’s complicated’ includes those who do not want to say, some who want to reserve their position until they see the actual bill, and people who are considering abstaining.

It also includes those who will follow the intention of their electorate, state or make a call based on the percentage split of the survey.
