To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament:

  The petition of the undersigned citizens and residents of Australia respectfully shows:

  That the current Oath/Affirmation of Allegiance made by prospective citizens of Australia pledges allegiance to Her Majesty, Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia, Her Heirs and Successors.

Your Petitioners pray that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should:

  Legislate to change the Australian Citizenship Oath/Affirmation of Allegiance to a pledge of Allegiance to Australia and the people of Australia, to reflect the true nature of Australian Government and society.

And your Petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray.
