Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has boldly tweeted the current Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, urging Peter Dutton to be remanded to the High Court.
Malcolm Turnbull made the public statement to the current Prime Minister while he was in the Winter Ball, saying that Dutton should be referred, as was Barnaby Joyce.
Mr. Dutton's eligibility to sit in parliament became a hot topic when Turnbull's leadership position was under fire.
Malcolm Turnbull tweeted Scott Morrison boldly telling him to recommend Peter Dutton to the Supreme Court.
Peter Dutton's eligibility was criticized when he challenged Turnbull and Morrison for PM.
The issues of eligibility of the Minister of Internal Affairs surrounded two Brisbane child care centers run by Mr. Dutton's wife with constitutional rules that prohibit members with financial interests from taking office.
Fairfax Media revealed that a child care company operated by the Dutton family trust had received more than $ 5.6 million since 2014, raising questions about its eligibility by the Attorney General, who then referred the matter to the Attorney General.
Dutton's eligibility was proposed by Labor when they questioned the decision of the Minister of Internal Affairs to revoke visa decisions by immigration officials three years ago.
A motion to bring Mr. Dutton's eligibility to the Superior Court was rejected by 68 votes to 69 in the House of Representatives.
The Liberal Party will lose its power if Dutton's eligibility is referred to the Supreme Court, since it occupies Dickson's seat on the outskirts of Brisbane with a margin of 1.6 percent.
Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who resigned two weeks ago, is vacationing with his wife in New York.
