SYDNEY: Australia on Saturday decisively rejected a proposal to recognize Indigenous people in the constitution, in a major setback to the country’s efforts for reconciliation with its First Peoples.

Australians had to vote “Yes” or “No” in the referendum, the first in almost a quarter of a century, on the question of whether to alter the constitution to recognize Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people through the creation of an Indigenous advisory body, the “Voice to Parliament.”
