The dual citizenship crisis is set to dominate the last weeks of federal parliament for the year, after the Coalition and the Opposition agreed that all MPs must provide evidence of their citizenship status by 1 December. The Government believes that at least four Labor MPs may be dual citizens, while Labor in turn has questioned whether an additional five Liberal MPs are eligible to be in parliament. The outcomes of by-elections in the seats of New England and Bennelong in December will determine whether the Government retains its majority in the lower house.
