Channel 9 host Sonia Kruger will face a hearing in the Civil and Administrative Tribunal later this month over controversial remarks she made about Muslims two years ago.
The Conservative Party will continue to push for the abolition of government tribunals which are regularly misused by activists trying to crush free speech.
The Today Extra and The Voice host failed to have a racial vilification complaint against her dismissed, after her 2016 suggestion that Muslim immigration should be temporarily halted.
The tribunal refused an application by the Nine Network to have the complaint dismissed without a hearing.
In July 2016, Kruger endorsed a newspaper article by News Corp Australia columnist Andrew Bolt during a segment of the Today Show.
