An analysis of the Australian Referendum Study, 1999, conducted a few months after the republic referendum, shows that • the proposed republic was rejected because the majority of voters wanted a republic with a directly elected President; and that • this preference was particularly strong among those who self-identified as supporters of the more conservative parties. While these people contained many monarchists they contained even more ‘direct electionists’ and hardly any supporters of the republic proposed in 1999, where politicians would choose the President.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
