PM and opposition leader accuse each other of bad faith and trying to game disclosure requirements
Malcolm Turnbull has accused Bill Shorten of attempting to “protect” Labor MPs who appear to be in breach of the constitution by asking the government not to unilaterally refer them to the high court.
The prime minister pointedly refused the request, warning that the government will refer anyone where there are “substantial grounds” for believing they have breached the constitution, regardless of whether they can set out steps they took to renounce foreign citizenship.
