Call to reveal same-sex stance

Written By miftah nugraha on Selasa, 13 Agustus 2013 | 19.55

FAMILY First Senate candidate Peter Madden has urged Liberal Party candidates, Andrew Nikolic (Bass) and Eric Hutchinson (Lyons) to reveal their feelings on same-sex marriage or his party's preferences will be going to their political opponents.

"The people of Tasmania deserve to know where candidates from both major parties stand concerning family values issues," Mr Madden said today.

"Though Family First is very focused on Tasmania's economic restoration, family values are essential to who we support.

"Our support will go to family values candidates, not to any specific party."

The calls came as Labor MPs Geoff Lyons (Bass) and Dick Adams (Lyons) told the Mercury they had not changed their position to vote against same-sex marriage legislation.

Mr Madden said Mr Adams and Mr Lyons had proven their support for family values.

"The overwhelming majority of Liberal candidates uphold family values and will be supported by Family First," Mr Madden said.

"However Brigadier Nikolic and Eric Hutchinson have not made it clear where they stand on this important issue and this is not acceptable.

"Consequently we are calling them out, to make their position clear in the next 24 hours, otherwise preference deals may be finalised."

The Liberal Party have been contacted for comment.
