Marriage equality postal vote to be challenged in high court by Andrew Wilkie and advocates

‘The Coalition’s plan to hold a voluntary postal vote on same-sex marriage will be challenged in the high court by Andrew Wilkie and marriage equality advocates.

The challenge was announced on Wednesday by long-time LGBTI advocate, Rodney Croome, based on legal advice from QC Ron Merkel that the government has no power to order the Australian Bureau of Statistics to conduct the survey and appropriate $122m to conduct it.’
