That the Senate—
(a) notes that racism, extremism and hate speech have no place in our Australian democracy; and
(b) calls on all Australian political parties to put candidates and political parties that support these views, including One Nation, last on their electoral preferences in the upcoming Federal election.
I seek leave to make a very short statement.
The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.
T his relates to the importance of putting One Nation and other extremists last on how-to-vote cards .
We agree that racism, extremism and hate speech has no place in our Australian democracy. However, it is not up to the Senate to dictate how political parties determine how they allocate their preferences. Electoral matters are for the determination by party organisations.
Question agreed to.
