Josh Frydenberg slams ‘farcical’ suggestions he’s a dual citizenship

Josh Frydenberg has categorically rejected suggestions he could hold Hungarian citizenship.

But the government minister says there’s no need for a full audit of Australia’s federal politicans following the dual citizenship scandal.

The Energy Minister says his mother – who was born in Budapest – and grandparents were “stateless” when they arrived in Australia after fleeing the Holocaust.

He told Neil Mitchell it’s completely absurd to suggest he is a citizen of Hungary.

“It’s got to a farcical stage,” Mr Frydenberg said on 3AW.

“I’m an Australian and an Australian only.”
