Young Libs' gay marriage call

Written By miftah nugraha on Minggu, 03 Februari 2013 | 19.55

THE Young Liberals will urge the Federal Liberal Party to grant a conscience vote to members on marriage equality.

Delegates at the Young Liberals conference, being held in Hobart this weekend, yesterday passed the motion, apparently proposed by Victorian member Matthew Lesh.

"The Federal Conference calls on the Federal Party to grant it's Members and Senators a conscience vote on same-sex marriage," the motion read.

Proceedings at the conference were closed to the public and the outcome of voting on motions is supposed to be confidential, but Mr Lesh wrote on Twitter at 12.26pm: "The @FedYL just passed the motion I proposed in favour of a conscience vote for same-sex marriage in the Liberal Party."

Young Liberal Movement president and Tasmanian member Trent Hasson would not confirm the outcome of the vote but said the motion had been debated.

"Any motions we pass do not become Liberal Party policy until passed by the senior party's federal council," he said.

Australian Marriage Equality national convener Rodney Croome said support from the Young Liberals highlighted how important the issue was to young Australians.

"The Young Liberal motion increases pressure on Tony Abbott to include a conscience vote in this year's Coalition election platform and adds to growing pressure for a conscience vote from within the Coalition and from within Mr Abbott's own family," he said.
