Breaking News

Australia’s deputy prime minister, Barnaby Joyce, has revealed that he may hold dual citizenship with New Zealand.

Holding public office as a dual citizen is not allowed under Australia’s constitution.

Mr Joyce said he would refer the matter to the nation’s High Court.

He told parliament that he had legal advice saying he had not breached the constitution. He will stay on as deputy prime minister.
