Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has urged the coalition to get behind the Indigenous voice to parliament, as the wording of the referendum question that will enshrine the change is set to be revealed.
Cabinet is meeting to discuss the final question on Thursday morning after the prime minister, attorney-general and Indigenous Australians minister met with the referendum working group on Wednesday night.
While the coalition has struck a deal on how the vote will be conducted, it is yet to reach a formal position on whether to support the Indigenous voice.
Mr Albanese said the constitutional reform should be above party politics.
The bill passed the Senate with multi-party support but independent senator Lidia Thorpe abstained.
The Indigenous senator said this wasn’t a reflection of her views on the voice but a protest to the government shooting down her amendments.
The referendum is due to be held between October and December.
