The Prime Minister said the Federal Government would not make a statement to the media until it was done
Attorney General George Brandis said in a statement it was “unfair for an institution like the Commonwealth to judge on the conduct of a few individuals”
Attorney General George Brandis said 바카라in a statement: “What is fair for one person or another, is unfair for Australia.
“All Australians are entitled to the freedom to choose for themselves when and in what manner they marry.
“T바카라사이트hat is why we will always look to the views of Australians first before we make any change that infringes on another citizen’s individual freedoms.”
Mr Rudd, who was elected Prime Minister on a campaign against same-sex marriage in 2010, told the ABC’s 7.30 program he was “very pleased” the Federal Circuit Court had made the correct call after a lengthy argument with his senior Justice colleagues.
“It’s a matter of life and death for Australia, it’s a matter of survival. We are very happy with what we have done,” he said.
“So when the Chief Justices of the Federal Circuit Court come back with their judgment, I’ll probably get down to thinking about it in detail.”
Mr Rudd said it had been difficult because the case was before the Federal Court of Appeal, an institution that was likely to make a d바카라사이트ecision more quickly than the Supreme Court.
“As long as it’s in the Federal Court, then it’s got to be done very quickly,” he said.
“At least it’s been within the Supreme Court’s power. What I do have, however, is I have an opportunity to argue back to the Federal Court of Appeal that that’s not fair.”
The Australian Marriage Alliance won at the Federal Circuit Court to prevent same-sex marriage in Victoria.
