can i ask who has control over the senate is it the greens who currently side with Julia gillard or is it the coalistion (Tony Abbot) or is it the indipendents???
The Senate numbers are ALP 31, Greens 9, Coalition 34, DLP 1, Independent 1. The Greens hold the balance of power since their support for either the ALP or the Coalition is enough to secure a majority. The Greens power only exists when there is disagreement between the ALP and Coalition.
