Australian court to hear dual citizen saga in October

A dual citizenship saga that has gripped Australian politics for almost two months will not be tested in court until October.

The court will decide whether seven MPs are ineligible to sit in parliament for potentially being dual citizens when they ran for office.

A preliminary hearing for five of the politicians took place on Thursday.

The final outcome could imperil Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's slender grip on power.

The most high-profile person under scrutiny is Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce, a New Zealand dual citizen until last week.
