Professor Kim Rubenstein of the Australian National University says the High Court’s latest ruling on dual citizenship demonstrates the need for a referendum on section 44 of the Constitution. She says that only a "small pool" of Australians will be eligible to be in parliament unless section 44 is amended. A parliamentary inquiry is examining the question of whether changes to the Constitution are necessary, and it is slated to report its findings in coming days.
