What happens if the YES vote wins?

A:

A bill still needs to pass the parliament for marriage equality to be successful, regardless of the result of the plebiscite.

 

If a YES vote wins, the government has said it will allow its MPs a free vote (meaning all members and senators can vote however they like) on a private members’ bill for same-sex marriage. Many governments MPs have pledged to follow the result of the postal plebiscite, but others have said they will ignore it or just use it as a guide.
