  • Greens new party room assembles

    The Victorian Greens new party room has met for the first time, celebrating the growth in elected members and assigning portfolios and responsibilities for the new parliament.

    Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber said “it is exciting to meet with our new team today, including the first Greens elected to Victoria’s lower house.”

    “The election results show strong support for Greens policies, which should send a clear message to the old political parties to green up their platforms.

  • Andrews Government faces bill battle in mixed Upper House

    THE new Labor Government faces a battle to get some laws through State Parliament after 10 minor party MPs with starkly different views won seats in the Legislative Council.

  • Greens gain upper house seats

    Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber said he is thrilled with his party's results, which were finalised at the VEC upper house count today.

 

    "Dan Andrews gained four seats from the Liberals but lost another three to the Greens. That's what being anti-green got him,” Mr Barber said.

    "Unless he gets serious about the environment, public transport and transparency in government, he's going to keep losing seats to the Greens.

    "This result is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our candidates and campaign supporters.
