Citizenship: Greens tell PM Abbott the constitution is not an inconvenience
The Greens say Tony Abbott will prove he is scared of his own Cabinet if he does not explain his citizenship laws before introducing them to Parliament next week.
"The constitution is not a mere inconvenience. If Mr Abbott was truly confident about these laws, he'd be taking them back to cabinet before introducing them," said Greens Legal Affairs spokesperson Senator Penny Wright.
"Only a couple of ministers have seen the legal advice and they won't say whether Abbott's citizenship laws are constitutional or not.
