Greens win Randwick Council vote on support for marriage equality legislation following the effective end to the plebiscite option for local MP Malcom Turnball – 13th October 2016

UPDATE:  Last Tuesday Randwick Council supported Greens Councillor Murray Matson’s urgency motion on marriage equality legislation that encouraged the Prime Minister to realign the coalition towards supporting legislation.

 

Greens Councillor Murray Matson’s motion was voted on at last night’s Randwick City Council meeting with support from both Labor and Liberal Councillors.

Councillor Matson and fellow Greens Councillor Lindsay Shurey issued the following statement addressed to the Prime Minister who holds the local seat of Wentworth in their Council area.

“The decision by the federal Labor caucus now means that Prime Minster is left with no option but to work with the Greens and Labor to bring in marriage equality on behalf of our Council’s LGBTI community in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.“
