2468 Barnaby Joyce OKBy ERWIN CHLANDA
 
The Federal Government may be on the brink of collapse because Deputy Prime Minster Barnaby Joyce (pictured) is a Kiwi (by descent), but voters in Alice Springs can pre-poll without fear because council candidates are allowed to have two or more citizenships.
 
One of them must be Australian, of course.
 
The same applies to candidates for a seat in the NT Government, according to the NT Electoral Commission.
