Dual citizens can stand for council, NT Parliament

2468 Barnaby Joyce OKBy ERWIN CHLANDA


The Federal Government may be on the brink of collapse because Deputy Prime Minster Barnaby Joyce (pictured) is a Kiwi (by descent), but voters in Alice Springs can pre-poll without fear because council candidates are allowed to have two or more citizenships.


One of them must be Australian, of course.


The same applies to candidates for a seat in the NT Government, according to the NT Electoral Commission.
