|Understanding how laws are made and how your Parliament works is good for all of us to know. Many new arrivals to our country decide they want to become Australian citizens. Everyone who becomes an Australian citizen has to make the following pledge.
From this time forward under God*
I pledge my loyalty to Australia and its people,
Whose democratic beliefs I share,
Whose rights and liberties I respect, and
whose laws I will uphold and obey.
* A person may choose whether or not to use the words ‘under God’.
