Karvelas is a strong advocate of the Albanese Government‘s proposal for an Indigenous Voice to Parliament. She tweeted a message of support from the Labor 2022 election night party, posing with Labor’s Indigenous Affairs spokeswoman Linda Burney and writing: “This woman is a legend and looks like she will be the next Indigenous affairs minister #UluruStatement”. ABC Managing Director told a Senate Estimates hearing on 29 November that this did “not” demonstrate political bias.
In a 13 Nov article for the ABC, Karvelas likened the referendum to enshrine an indigenous body within the constitution to the same-sex-marriage debate, and endorsed Noel Pearson‘s claim that “heartless” people opposing the Voice will be easy, writing that it would be “like shooting fish in a barrel because of the racism inherent to the colonisation experience that has not been reckoned with.” For RN Breakfast following the National Party‘s November announcement that it would oppose the Voice, Karvelas conducted an 8 minute combative interview with Nationals Leader David Littleproud, rejecting his arguments as “inaccurate”, before conducting a supportive extended 17 minute interview with Voice proponent Noel Pearson, in which he attacked Littleproud and Indigenous Senator Jacinta Price without cross examination
