The question of trust loomed large in the 45th parliament across a range of constitutional issues. In this chapter, we trace three of the more significant legal events that contributed to a breakdown in trust between government and citizen. We explore the eligibility crisis that saw 18 of parliament’s members disqualified under the various limbs of section 44, the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey and the government’s rejection of the ‘Uluru Statement from the Heart’.
