Barnaby Joyce nearly called it quits amid citizenship row

Govt considering dual citizenship changes

"I would like to apologise for the inconvenience that will happen by reason of having a by-election, which we will go to nearly immediately".

The High Court of Australia decision means three of the politicians, including Mr Joyce, are disqualified from office.

Barnaby Joyce has blasted Liberal Party figures for sniping at the Nationals over the dual citizenship saga, reminding them the junior Coalition partner was responsible for winning last year's election.

And as for Joyce and his role - he said he's still committed to getting back to work in the hopes of winning the upcoming by-election, with Northern Territory Senator Nigel Scullion filling his place as interim leader of the National Party and Deputy PM.

Mr Joyce has chosen to fight for his former seat and has begun campaigning in New England ahead of a by-election on December 2.

Australian Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce and four other Australian MPs have been ruled ineligible for election to parliament due to their dual nationality.


It's expected he will win after his main challenger, former independent MP Tony Windsor, announced he would not be running.

"I think it's unlikely the High Court would strike down decisions before these issues arose", the University of NSW Dean of Law told the ABC this morning.

"I respect the verdict of the court", Mr Joyce said immediately after the verdict.

Mr Joyce gestured at the New England countryside around him.

'I just think people should be reminded of that and if they really have a strong view about something, put your name to it'.

Australia's constitution prohibits dual citizens from being elected.
