The Australian Greens Co-convenors Penny Allman-Payne and Giz Watson have reiterated the Australian Greens’ support for Senator Lee Rhiannon.

“We congratulate Senator Rhiannon for being elected by a full ballot of our NSW members to re-contest her seat and then by the voters of NSW, said Giz Watson.

“We look forward to her continuing to represent the people of NSW and our Greens policies and principles, she said.

Further, our National Council issued the following statement from our meeting last Sunday regarding the election campaign:


The Australian Greens' National Council: 

1. Thanks and congratulates all candidates, staff and volunteers for their hard work, which made the campaign an overall success.

2. Recognises that this is the biggest campaign that the Australian Greens have ever run and acknowledges the cooperation and collaboration right across the country that made this possible.

3. Notes with sadness that Robert Simms has not been returned to Parliament and acknowledges and thanks Robert for the important contributions he made in his time as a Senator for South Australia and his advocacy on a range of important issues including LGBTIQA+ rights and higher education.
