NED LUDD SAYS..An Indigenous President for the Republic of Australia!

People!

Run this up the political flagpole.

Combine indigenous recognition in the constitution with the republic..

..by constitutionally requiring the President of Australia be elected from the nation's indigenous constituency.

A few definitions, presidential job description, to be sorted. But all in all, too easy.

First round of voting: indigenous constituency elects a limited number of presidential candidates.

Second round: national constituency elects the president from the indigenous-elected candidates.

Me, I'd love to see President Marcia Langton give the other arm of government a good kicking.

President Noel Pearson would also do me. Or...

Light blue touch paper and stand back.
