Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce has been kicked out of parliament.

The High Court has ruled the Nationals leader is ineligible to be an MP due to his dual citizenship.

The Nationals’ deputy leader Fiona Nash has also been ruled also ineligible.

Senators Larissa Waters and Scott Ludlam (Greens) and Malcolm Roberts (One Nation) have been ruled ineligible due to dual citizenship.

Senators Waters and Ludlam had already resigned.

Senators Matt Canavan (Nationals) and Nick Xenophon (NX Team) have been ruled eligible.

The result leaves the government’s majority in the lower house in doubt, pending a by-election in Mr Joyce’s NSW seat of New England.

The by-election will take place on December 2.

Tom Elliott said the whole situation is a “mess”.

“Some of these people should have known,” the 3AW Drive host said.
