A Voice to Parliament - News Coverage

A referendum is planned to change the constitution to provide for A Voice to Parliament.

A Voice to Parliament is a body enshrined in the Constitution that would enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to provide advice to the Parliament on policies and projects that impact their lives.

A Voice to Parliament gives the Australian Government the opportunity to make policies with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, rather than for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The Voice Debate

Sky News

Sunday 4 September 9pm AEST

An upcoming special television debate on the Indigenous Voice to Parliament is set to be aired by Sky News Australia.

The debate, hosted by Sky News host Chris Kenny, will answer burning questions about the referendum for the Voice and what it will mean for Australia.

Panellists include Senator Jacinta Nampijinpa Price, Marion Scrymgour MP, Director of the Uluru Statement from the Heart Dean Parkin, and Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

I surely hope that Bolt and Kenny don’t “go head-to-head” in this debate. Kenny is meant to be the independent moderator, yes?
