Adam Bandt needs to ‘reconsider his position’ on the Australian flag: Albanese

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese says Greens leader Adam Bandt must “reconsider his position” on removing the Australian flag at news conferences.

Bandt recently said, “For many Australians, this flag represents the dispossession and lingering pains of colonization.”

Albanese said he was “quite surprised” by the comments made by Bandt about the Australian flag.

“I am always very proud to stand in front of the Australian flag and I think anyone who is a member of the Australian parliament should too,” Albanese told a news conference on Wednesday.

“I’m just saying to Mr Bandt that he needs to think about the responses that have been given and reconsider his position and work to promote unity and work to promote reconciliation.”
