The results, so far, for yesterday’s Australian Federal Election are quite interesting. We seems to be left with a hung parliament, the choice of who to form a minority parliament going to 4 independents and 1 Greens candidate.
With little difference between the 2 major parties The Greens are gathering momentum. Having gained 1 lower house seat, and over 10% of the primary lower house votes across the country. Plus what looks to be 6 Senate seats, for a total of 9. They are no longer a party that the major parties can ignore.
Can we look ahead to Australia actually having a 3rd major party? Moving away from just a choice between ALP and Liberals/Nationals?
