Adam Bandt just seemed to flag this as a possibility as I watch ABC news. I haven't followed political analysis as much this election as in have in the past. Is this a real possibility for the formation of government? (Be still, my beating heart). Surely it would be political suicide for Shorten?

Yes. Very much so. It's brilliant. Greens will pull labor left. It will overall be a very centric gov if it forms based on this election.

I don't think its going to happen from what I've been reading from the independents.

Andrew Wilkie - no deals with either party
Cathy McGowen - no deals with either party.
Bandt- Labor
NXT - Maybe Labor
Katter  - LNP

AEC has 69 Labor with 3 more expected, at 72 they'd need 4. There aren't 4 people to carry them over.

LNP have worse odds.

I wish, but I think it will be back to banger-geddon.
Within the month.

The Senate.....good grief, the senate....
If it wasn't so terrifying it would be hilarious.

That would be interesting but I don't think the numbers are there.

There is a lot of animosity to overcome between the two.

I don't think greens have enough seats in the lower house for it to be possible. If they had 3-4 then I'd give it merit (q d would love to see it). Greens looking at 1 or maybe 2 seats only if I understand which I don't think will be enough.

But the concept of a re-election may sway polliesto negotiate to form. No one wants the uncertainty of another election.

If the ABCs prediction of the 13 uncertain seats is correct it will probably fall out as 77 labor 74 LNP when you add them to results from AEC page. Plus 1 Green means a labour/green majority.

Postal votes are usually conservative but they were mostly done at the peak of mediscare campaign so I think it's a possibility.
