August 09, 2017

One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts has decided to refer his eligibility to the High Court.

One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts will refer himself to the High Court over his eligibility to sit in federal parliament.

Party leader Pauline Hanson made the announcement on Wednesday after Labor and the Greens appeared to have the numbers to refer him over his British citizenship.

"I'm looking forward very much to presenting my documents, tendering them in the High Court and let the High Court make the decision," Senator Roberts told reporters in Canberra.
