Jacqui Lambie confirms she is a dual citizen

Jacqui Lambie Could Resign Within 24 Hours Over Possible Dual Citizenship

Senator Lambie announced the news on a local radio station in her home state, Tasmania Talks. However she is awaiting confirmation from British Authorities.

"So when Senate starts this morning at 12.30pm".

I can see how all these politicians are only just having the ancestry chat with their parents now; it's not like this dual citizenship thing has made much of a stir in Aussie politics recently... "It's been made quite clear that because of my father, I am also Scottish".

"They got onto me about Section 44 and I had to renounce my British citizenship", he said of the party.

Earlier, she told the Hobart Mercury: "If I am a dual citizen I will resign, if it is black and white there is no need to take it to the High Court, as simple as that".

Government backbencher John Alexander resigned on the weekend because he is a dual UK-Australian citizen, but he'll contest a by-election for his old seat of Bennelong on December 16. She intends to resign from the Senate on Tuesday, the 46-year-old said.

"I'm happy to put on record that I'm satisfied that my parents are both Australian citizens and I have no concerns about me being a dual citizen because of where they were born or came from", she said.
