Labor won the election in what has been touted as a convincing fashion. The reality, however, is that the major parties attracted between 30 and 35% of the vote each and the Liberal party actually took more of the two. The impact of secondary voting in Australia’s political system is hugely impactful, and it seems odd that a majority government can be formed after not receiving the bulk of primary votes. Host Andrew Baxter notes that the world has changed and perhaps our political system should be reviewed, but perhaps that’s an issue for another podcast. A large contingent of Independent and Greens candidates winning seats led to Labor’s majority and this shift in the political landscape could have some significant consequences for Labor’s tenure.
