Labor MP David Feeney resigns as citizenship saga continues

3AW News

Labor MP David Feeney has resigned as the citizenship debacle claims another scalp.

The MP for Batman announced his resignation at a press conference this afternoon after he failed to renounce his dual citizenship.

“I am unable to disprove that I am a dual citizen,” he said.

“This has been an incredibly difficult decision.”

At a High Court hearing last month, his lawyers admitted he still did not have the paperwork to prove he had revoked his British citizenship.

His resignation will trigger a by-election in the marginal seat.

Union boss Ged Kearney is reportedly set to be put forward as Labor’s candidate for Batman.
