Indigenous Voice process won’t be rushed: Minister Burney
Indigenous Australians Minister Linda Burney has stressed the process to enshrine an Indigenous Voice in the constitution would not be rushed.
As the prime minister revealed on the weekend at the Garma Festival the possible question that could be asked in a referendum, Ms Burney said there was already large amounts of detail out about how the body would function.
She said while the Voice was an important issue, the government would aim to pursue as much consensus as possible about the path to establish it.
“We will not be rushed, and it is very important that this belongs to the Australian people, not to politicians,” she told ABC radio on Monday.
