The 1999 referendum


The story about the referendum  is set out in more detail in another section of this site. Suffice to say, although enjoying considerable political, media and financial support, the referendum was defeated in 1999, nationally, in all states and in 72% of electorates. 

the Australian Republican Movement did not go into liquidation as it promised before the referendum. It has however changed into an umbrella orgaization trying to include once mortal enemies, conservative republicans and those who wish to have a general election to fill the presidency, a matter considered elsewhere.
