Prime Minister Scott Morrison, while introducing the Religious Discrimination Bill to parliament, put his “standing and authority and conviction” behind the act, according to The Australian’s Editor-at-Large Paul Kelly.

“A lot of consequences flow from this; what it means is that he must aim to get this bill passed into law before the election,” Mr Kelly told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“This is about his personal vision, it’s about pledges he’s made in the past, it’s about the mandate he has, and I think not only is there pressure on the prime minister, there’s also pressure on the Labor Party.

“Because while the government is divided about this issue, I think it’s more challenging for Labor and I think the pressure that Labor will be under will be more significant.”
