Australia's constitution and the Voice referendum

From Nights, 9:30 pm on 21 September 2023

On the same day New Zealand will be voting to decide its next government, Australians will be voting on a proposed change to their constitution. The Indigenous voice to government would enshrine a permanent representation and recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Constitutional expert and a professor of law at the University of Canberra Kim Rubenstien explains how Australia ended up with a constitution and what changes the Voice will make.
