Advocates say the drawn out Coalition party room debate on marriage equality boosts the case for a free vote on the issue.

Australian Marriage Equality national director, Rodney Croome, said,

“The drawn out party room debate shows there are passionately held views on both sides and the best way forward is a free vote.”

“The whole point of free votes is to allow impasses like this to be resolved.”

“Those Coalition members opposed to marriage equality must show greater respect to those members who do, and to the Australian people, by allowing a free vote.”

“Coalition members like Kelly O’Dwyer, Sarah Henderson, Ewen Jones and Darren Chester should be allowed to fulfil their commitment to their electorates and vote for marriage equality.”
