Rebekha Sharkie, Josh Wilson, Susan Lamb and Justine Keay have also announced today they are quitting Parliament in the wake of the Gallagher ruling.

Four federal M-Ps embroiled in the dual citizenship saga have resigned from parliament. In the meantime, Turnbull's slender majority remains safe.

The High Court of Australia ruled that Gallagher's seat would be filled by counting back votes from the 2016 federal election. Lamb has stated she is not to blame for the mix-up as she is estranged from her surviving parent, who holds the marriage certificate needed by the British Government to totally rescind her citizenship.

Shorten said his party had relied on an older interpretation of Section 44 (a), a much-debated rule in the constitution, that says members of parliament can not continue to have citizenship in another country, and must prove they took "all reasonable steps" to renounce the other citizenship before being elected.
