The Marriage Equality Movement (MEM) says its supporters have increased turnout of 7 percent since early evening

The outcome in the states means marriage equality is now back in the mainstream at last.

It means the marriage equality issue has returned to the spotlight in Australia, but it could soon reach into other states.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten described the result as a “mighty day for marriage equality”.

The Marriage Equality Movement (MEM) is planning further protests in the upcoming weeks.

The 더킹카지노party’s deputy leader, Scott Ludlam, said after midnight that Mr Shorten would be running a “soft launch” for the party next week in Victoria.

“He will be running against me at the MEC caucus meeting in Melbourne next week for this Liberal party position in the upcoming election,” Mr Ludlam said.

“That will be our launch platform against gay marriage.”

Mr Shorten is already facing tough opposition at the state level.

The South Australia Labor leadership election is being held on August 2 in the state.

The result in South Australia, with an overwhelming majority support for equal marriage, means that the Coalition is 바카라now the only Opposition party capable of taking it to the ballot box.

The Labor Party leader is tipped to win the seat.

It remains바카라사이트 unclear when or if he will stand down in that position, but Mr Shorten has been urging his MPs to campaign for the Liberal Party to keep control of Parliament for the foreseeable future.

Labor’s deputy leader also urged party members to take part in the “soft launch” for the vote.

“What this result tells us is not only is there huge opposition on this issue, but there is an enormous demand for an end to it,” Mr Ludlam said.

“I have just come from a meeting where, as part of that meeting, there were 150 people present who are concerned about what marriage equality is achieving in their area of choice.”

Mr Ludlam will not reveal the number of the group’s supporters until a later stage.

The marriage equality campaign was largely a symbolic event.
