Hopes of indigenous recognition in the constitution before the next election are fading.
Liberal MP Ken Wyatt, the first indigenous member of the House of Representatives, said: ”My personal view is that there has not been enough discussion, nor enough work done in the broader Australian community. If I was a punter, I would say that it will be in the next term, after the next election, because logic tells me that to get 14 million people being persuaded to support the referendum with absolute majority will take a bit of work.”
The Parliament’s first indigenous woman, Labor senator Nova Peris, still hopes a referendum can be put next year, but says the next six months may be crucial in determining the timing.
While both say the Recognise campaign for change has generated much support, Senator Peris fears that some momentum could fade if the question is not put until after the next election.
Mr Wyatt said there was strong bipartisan and community support for recognition.
”This cannot fail. Australia has to be ready,” Senator Peris said.
