Australian leader says gay marriage could be law this year

Australian leaders plan vote on same-sex marriage Australian Prime Minister: Same-Sex Marriage Could Be Legalized Before Year's End

The prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, favoured gay marriage, wanted to hold a "plebiscite" (mandatory voting, but whose results are not binding), but the opposition has failed with this proposal in the Senate. The Liberal-National Coalition attempted to legalize same-sex marriage past year, but the proposal was narrowly defeated. "We trust the Australian people", he said.

After the song has ended, Minchin implores Australians to counter the "horrid" plebiscite and "drown the mofos in "yes" votes".

"I won't be checking my mail at my old residence, ' Nick told Hack, "So does that just mean my vote is lost in the mail?"

The legal challenge will come before the full bench of the court on September 5 and 6, Chief Justice Susan Kiefel told a hearing in Sydney on Friday.

"But let me say to you, that is what they want you to do".

The government will announce the result of the plebiscite and whether the issue will be voted on in parliament by November 15.

There are almost 300,000 people aged 18-24 who aren't on the electoral roll, and marriage equality campaigners eager to sign up as many as possible because younger voters tend to be more supportive of legalising same-sex marriage.

Australia's prime minister said Tuesday that Parliament could legalize gay marriage this year if the nation's voters endorse it in a rare nonbinding poll in November.

Parliament would vote on legislation before December 7, but only if the plebiscite shows most Australians want gay marriage.

Australian Sen. Penny Wong, who is gay and has two children, said Wednesday - citing a past incident of hate - that a Christian group in 2013 suggested children who have gay parents are "stolen".

'I think this gives us some hope the facts that we've raised and the issues we've expressed about why this postal plebiscite is going to be so detrimental and distressing are going to be considered and thought about, ' she said in Melbourne.

Kirby would not comment on the legality of the government proceeding with the 122 million Australian dollar (USD96 million) ballot without Parliament's approval, but said: "I'm not going to take any part in it whatsoever".

"I think the thing is, it is confusing to children".

"No amount of words from my colleagues can hide from the fact that this is one big massive handball because this is a government without a leader, utterly divided on this issue", she said. Also, Australians would not get a chance to see the legislation they are voting on until after casting their ballots.
