Election Survey - Commonwealth 2014 - Q2


Q2 - Marriage

In 2004 the Marriage Act 1961 was amended to reaffirm the understanding across cultures throughout history, that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. The purpose of marriage is to ensure that wherever possible, children are raised with both mum and dad role models in a stable environment - shown by research to be the safest family type.

Would you vote to retain the Marriage Act 1961 definition of marriage as "the union of a man and a woman, to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life"?

Australian Labor Party 

The Labor Party believes that all people are entitled to respect, dignity and the opportunity to participate fully in society regardless of their sexuality. For example, Federal Labor has amended 85 Federal laws to remove discrimination across areas such as superannuation and tax law. 

When the issue of same sex marriage has previously been considered by Parliament, Federal Labor has allowed each MP and Senator a conscience vote according to their own personal views. This reflects the fact that people of good will can hold different positions on this fundamental matter.

Liberal National Coalition

The Coalition policy supports the current definition of marriage contained in the Marriage Act. Any change to the policy would be a matter for the Party Room in the future, as is the case with all policies.

Tony Abbott supports the existing definition of marriage.
