Crikey Worm: secret dual citizens put on notice

Good morning, early birds. The Prime Minister has finally moved to put an end to the dual citizenship scandal undermining his government, and 2017 now tipped to be the third hottest year on record. It's the news you need to know, with Max Chalmers.

SECTION 44 LOOMS STILL

MPs will have 21 days to out themselves as dual citizens or face penalties under a proposal put forward by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to bring the crisis plaguing his government to a conclusion. Labor leader Bill Shorten has indicated he will consider the plan, which is modelled on the often criticised parliamentary register of financial interests, and would force MPs to prove their compliance with the constitution. Fairfax reports the new system could be voted on by the Senate as soon as next week.
