voted compared to someone who believes that
the federal government should actively support and promote multiculturalism in Australia
The majority voted against a motion introduced by Greens Senator Kerry Nettle (NSW), which means it failed.
That, in the opinion of the Senate, the following is a matter of urgency: The need for the Senate to:
(a) note the Prime Minister’s recent comments about the Muslim community needing to learn English and respect women; and
(b) call on all political parties and leaders to promote the values of multiculturalism in the Australian community and the need for all members of the community to respect women.
Not passed by a small majority

phrase to summarise their position on a policy. However in this case
was absent during all divisions for this policy. So, it's impossible to say anything concrete other
than that they have "never voted" on this policy.
