Anthony Albanese has hit back at Voice to Parliament critics who say the proposal lacks detail.

The Prime Minister told voters there was ‘nothing to fear’ about the upcoming referendum, saying that it is ‘just about recognition, and then about an advisory body’.

Speaking to 10News, Mr Albanese insisted there the is nothing wrong with the amount of detail in the proposal.

‘The detail is there and of course, the Parliament will determine the composition and procedures of the Voice,’ he said on the program.

He went on to say that those who question why the referendum has to occur before the set up of the Voice is worked out are not asking a ‘genuine question’.

‘The Constitution sets out the principles and the beauty of this proposal is that it doesn’t interfere with the primacy of the Parliament, it reinforces it – that’s the whole point,’ he said.

‘It will be up to Parliament to determine the functions and procedures, composition of the Voice and that has been the way that our Constitution is written.

‘It says we’ll have a defence force, it doesn’t say how many tanks we’ll have, it doesn’t say where the bases will be, it doesn’t say what the size of our army should be.’

Mr Albanese would not agree that there had been an ugly element to the Voice campaign.

‘I think that some of the tone of the debate has been really unfortunate and whether it be the participants or some of the tone that’s been set by some elements of the media, it is unfortunate.’

In the latest Guardian Essential poll of 1,135 respondents, 51 per cent said they intended to vote no, 41 per cent will vote yes and nine per cent were undecided.

Up to 42 per cent identified as a ‘hard no’ while 28 per cent were a ‘hard yes’. Eight per cent said they were a ‘soft no’ while 12 per cent were a ‘soft yes’.

The poll indicated 29 per cent of respondents were still persuadable and described themselves as a hard or soft yes or no, or undecided.
