CANBERRA, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- The dual-citizenship problem plaguing Australia's Parliament might have claimed its biggest victim yet, with Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce now under scrutiny for his links to New Zealand, but this latest revelation might have one upside: the rewriting and updating of Australia's Constitution.

A constitutional lawyer has told Xinhua that Australia's Constitution Købe Herre New Balance 580 Rød , first drafted in the 1890s, may be "outdated," meaning it may no longer represent modern Australia - one which is overwhelmingly welcoming to those of different backgrounds.

On Monday, it was revealed that the Deputy PM's father was a New Zealand citizen, meaning Joyce, who was born in rural New South Wales Herre New Balance 580 Sort Billige , automatically and "unwittingly" became a "Kiwi" under New Zealand citizenship law.

The revelation means that Joyce has violated the infamous Section 44 of the Australian Constitution, which states that anyone who "is a subject or a citizen of a foreign power ... shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a member of the House of Representatives."

He finds himself in exactly the same position as Greens Senators Scott Ludlam and Larissa Waters, and Nationals Senator Matt Canavan, all of whom were found to have been dual citizens in recent weeks. Waters and Ludlum chose to resign, while Canavan has stepped back from his Cabinet position, pending a High Court ruling.

But this string of controversies surrounding Australia's Parliamentary dual-citizenship laws sits uneasily alongside a fundamental aspect of Australian society: multiculturalism.

Australia's national anthem proudly declares there are "boundless plains to share Tilbud Herre New Balance 996 Grå Sølv ," while the nation has accepted migrants from all parts of the world since the Gold Rush of the 1850s.

Major Australian cities have some of the biggest and most vibrant "Chinatowns" in the world, Melbourne is home to the second largest Greek population outside of Athens, Italians migrated en masse in the middle parts of the 19th century, while more recently, those from the Middle East, Vietnam and parts of Africa have all been welcomed with open arms.

It's is baffling Herre New Balance 996 Sort Rød DK , then, that prospective politicians - those who wish to make a difference to the society in which they grew up - may be ineligible for being a dual citizen.

Even a leading constitutional lawyer has expressed her reservations at the current state of Australia's dual citizenship laws; speaking to Xinhua on Tuesday, Professor Cheryl Saunders from the University of Melbourne said there was no doubt that making amendments to the "out of date" Section 44 would be considered in the future.

"There have been previous proposals to amend Section 44, and it is quite possible that these will be revisited at some stage," Saunders told Xinhua in an interview.

"The world was very different when Section 44 was drafted in the 1890s. In particular, given the size of the British Empire at that stage Herre New Balance 996 Grå Sort Danmark , the category of 'subjects of the Queen' was much larger; Australia itself did not yet have a separate category of 'citizen'.

"So, it is fair to say that the section is now outdated."

Saunders said Australia should take cues from international law, whereby dual citizens who have "naturalized" in one nation take on a "real and effective" nationality, leaving their dual-citizenship "dormant."

"The international law concept, canvassed in (Australian Parliamentary eligibility case) Sykes v Cleary, of 'real and effective nationality' seems more appropriate Herre New Balance 996 Blå Sølv Udsalg ," Saunders told Xinhua.

Meanwhile Joyce's colleague and Leader of the House, Christopher Pyne, on Tuesday said that it was "absurd" that a foreign nation can confer citizenship on someone who has never lived in that country, regardless of descent.

"We have taken the adult action of saying that Section 44 needs to be clarified by the High Court," Pyne told Sky News.

"Clearly, it's absurd that a person who was born in 1967 in Australia Billige Herre New Balance 996 Gul Hvid , whose father left New Zealand in 1947, can have citizenship conferred upon him by a foreign country.

This "issue" has for months now threatened the government's Parliamentary majority, but it's an issue which really isn't a problem at all, meaning a review of the 120-year-old Constitution might not be far away.
