CLP Senate candidate Jacinta Price says Labor is assuming Indigenous Australians aren’t capable of maintaining an ID, with new laws proposed which would require ID to be presented for voting.

“The only reason why Labor are fearful of this is because, well, there’s going to be measures in place to stop unscrupulous, sort of, behaviour in communities,” Ms Price told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“Let’s face it, Labor are assuming that Aboriginal Australians aren’t capable of maintaining an ID.

“How paternalistic is that attitude toward Indigenous Australians?

“A lot of aboriginal people have an ID, they know how to utilise an ID for several other … means.”
