Greens are not preferencing Libs or Nats in any seat

Any suggestion that the Greens are preferencing the Liberals or Nationals anywhere is entirely false.

Despite anything that might be in the media, or in any garbled reports you may receive, the Greens are NOT recommending preferences to the Liberals (or Nationals) in any seats. We ARE recommending a preference to the ALP in the vast majority of the marginals that matter, and in most other seats.

In some seats, we will leave it to the voters' choice, by providing a split or open ticket that allows them to Vote Green and then preference whichever major party they choose.

In the Upper House we have already determined to provide all preferences to like-minded parties first, then Labor, then the Conservatives, then the candidates with the most extremely opposed position to The Greens.

By contrast, the ALP has preferenced the so-called Country Alliance ahead of the Greens. This Party is essentially a Shooters-and-Loggers Party.

Anyone who expresses any doubts about Greens preferences should be referred to the Greens website where the whole set of lower house tickets is available:

Make your vote work for you

All of a sudden the mainstream political parties are jumping on board the climate change train, the power of public pressure never ceases to amaze me, well done to everyone who has highlighted the issue to our pollies. Of course the Greens have always had policies in place to address global warming because the Greens understand how critical the issue is and the Greens actually care about a long term future for us on the planet.

The mainstream parties are making noises now about climate change, but are they genuine, why is it that its only an issue now there's an election in the wind? If they were really concerned they would already be taking real action on climate change, not allowing the logging of water catchments or propping up of the dirtiest coal fired power station - Hazelwood.
Make sure when you cast your vote on the 25th November that you vote Greens 1 in the upper and lower house, because I know you care about the planet as much as I do.
