Australia has taken a decisive step towards legislating marriage equality by Christmas after The result, announced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on Wednesday, will lead to consideration of a same-sex marriage bill in parliament with the prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull , promising marriage equality should be law by Christmas. With a turnout of A bill is expected to pass, with many opponents of marriage equality in parliament promising to respect the result, although parliament may consider amendments.

Marriage equality plebiscite: Pyne says Coalition may consult Labor on wording

If Australia is going to have a plebiscite on marriage equality, how should it work?

Brian Tobin does not work for, consult, own shares in or receive funding from any company or organisation that would benefit from this article, and has disclosed no relevant affiliations beyond their academic appointment. Ireland made history in May by becoming the first country to legalise same-sex marriage by popular vote. Australia may follow suit if the Coalition keeps its commitment to hold a plebiscite on same-sex marriage by , the yes vote wins, and subsequent legislation passes the parliament. But as the Irish experience shows, putting a human rights issue to a national vote is a crude means of legalising same-sex marriage. It forces a historically oppressed minority to literally have to plead with the majority for access to marriage in the months prior to the vote. It also provides a platform for those opposed to misinform the public and air anti-gay views. Campaigners claimed that providing constitutional protection for same-sex marriage would lead to a corresponding right of access to surrogacy for male same-sex couples, and this would be detrimental to child welfare.

The Coalition could consult with Labor to reach a more favourable wording of the same-sex marriage plebiscite question to win opposition support for the popular vote, Christopher Pyne has suggested. The idea comes as the attorney general, George Brandis, and pro-marriage equality Liberal MPs have warned Labor must support the plebiscite or marriage equality will be off the agenda for years. The government is struggling to win support for the plebiscite-enabling legislation, with the Greens , the Nick Xenophon Team and Derryn Hinch intending to block it , and Labor giving strong indications it will too. A Newspoll published by the Australian on Tuesday showed voters rated dealing with marriage equality the second-highest priority of the new parliament, behind budget repair but equal with border security.
Same-sex marriage could be legislated by the end of the year, despite the Government resubmitting its plebiscite Bill to a likely lost vote in the Parliament. Liberal members attending a special meeting in Canberra on Monday stood by the policy taken to the election for a national vote on changing marriage laws. However if the Bill fails a second time - which appears likely unless the Nick Xenophon Team changes its position - a voluntary postal ballot would be conducted. Malcolm Turnbull with former Today entertainment reporter Richard Reid called an emergency Liberal Party meeting to resolve a postal vote on gay marriage. Gay marriage could be legalised as early as next year after liberal party agrees to second plebiscite.
