Vote Down Referendum

Votes have been cast in the Voice to Parliament referendum among Australians. The constitutional amendment that would have officially recognised Indigenous Australians and established the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice as an advisory body to the federal government was soundly defeated. A double majority, or a yes vote from the majority of Australians and states, was required for the referendum to pass. Australia has six states and all states reject the voice referendum.

The Voice referendum has been soundly defeated, with the national vote likewise rejecting the idea and all six states on course to vote No with a majority. It seems like the ACT will be the only part of Australia to vote in favour. The rejection of the referendum, according to a disappointed Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, will not cause a rift in the nation, according to Opposition Leader Peter Dutton.

Voice referendum Media Reaction

The voice referendum went down at 5:35 PM and a prediction was made that it would get a majority. There was a fact that polls may get closed and the referendum lashed the media for not ensuring about the conclusion and a proper debate. After the result of the referendum it will set a history while many others blamed the media for not representing a proper and senseful debate in front of everyone. Some also blamed the media for spoiling the image of Australia.

Voice Referendum Result Impact

The Referendum result was a changemaker for sure while there were already numerous groups and spokespeople making a variety of arguments in favor of the cause, Albanese’s position put an utterly unfair amount of pressure on his Indigenous Affairs Minister Linda Burney to steer the debate from a position of relative insignificance within the government. The Voice initiative faced opposition from an electorate that is notably historically conservative about any change to the constitution and that, as Noel Pearson noted last year, has little awareness of and empathy for Indigenous people.
