Greens vote grows with successful council elections

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

The Greens are certain to increase their local government representation after yesterday’s successful council elections. 

With many votes still to be counted, the Greens already look likely to win 29 council positions this election and are in a strong position to win an additional 5 possible.

Out of the councils that voted, the Greens had 11 sitting councillors and 11 more from councils sacked by the Liberals in newly amalgamated councils. 

The Greens strong growth is despite a smaller pool of council positions due to the amalgamated councils across Sydney.
