New South Wales Attorney General says he won’t challenge marriage equality in court

Updated January 26, 2020 17:05:20 New South, Queensland Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie said he would not challenge the state’s marriage equality laws in the High Court.

Key points:Attorney-General said he was aware the Supreme Court had said marriage equality could not be challenged in courtMr Bleijies comments come after the State and Federal governments have agreed to a joint statement on marriage equalityThe State and federal governments agreed to the joint statement in Sydney on Wednesday.

The statement said that despite a number of challenges in the courts, “marriage is the fundamental institution of Australian society, which the Australian people have elected to be recognised by the State of Australia”.

“The Australian people did not vote for this.

It is the result of the will of the people of Australia and it will be the result only of the consent of the Australian community,” it said.

Mr Bleijs statement was made at a news conference in Sydney, where he said he did not believe that the State could change its laws.

“The Supreme Court has not said that marriage is for marriage between a man and a woman, it has not indicated that marriage cannot be changed,” he said.

“That is what marriage is, it is a union between a person and a person only.”

What is being said is that the Constitution gives marriage to the people, that the Government is giving that power to the Government, and that this Government will not be making a change in the law.

“So I don’t believe that this is an issue for me to be challenging in the Supreme Courts.”
