Greens Win Balance Of Power In Western Australian Upper House

The result is a bonus to the new Premier, Geoff Gallop, following his landslide win in the Legislative Assembly.

The outcome is also indicative of the extent to which the ALP’s win in the election is the product of a strong preference flow from the Greens and, to a lesser extent, the Australian Democrats.
