Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by Katter’s Australian Party Senator Fraser Anning, which means it was rejected.

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) notes the religious and historical significance of Jerusalem; and

(b) calls for the Australian Government to:

(i) recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and

(ii) move the Australian Embassy to the western side of Jerusalem, which in any scenario for peace is not disputed.

The question is that general business notice of motion No. 840 standing in the name of Senator Anning be agreed to.

Votes Not passed by a large majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
