The National Party will oppose an Indigenous Voice to Parliament, leader David Littleproud has said.

He said the idea, to be put to Australians at a referendum next year, would do nothing to “close the gap”.

"As the men and women who represent regional, rural and Indigenous and remote Australians ... we don't believe this will genuinely close the gap," Littleproud said, standing alongside National Party MPs.

Meanwhile, the Liberal Party is yet to make its position clear. Leader Peter Dutton has said he will wait for more information before advising Australians of the party’s stance.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has said he will put the question of an Indigenous Voice to Parliament to Australians in a referendum next year.

The Nationals are the only major party to have stated their opposition to the Voice.
