The Commonwealth Referendum acknowledges that over 90% of Australians voted to remove clauses from the Australian Constitution which discriminated against Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Australians. The Referendum also gave the Commonwealth Government the power to make laws on behalf of the Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples.
