The Greens increased their vote in the Territory by 25%. The Greens were able to run twelve candidates in the previous NT election. This time, six candidates stood. So the 25% gain represents a significant increase of the Greens' vote.
"With no counting of preferences below the two party preferred, we will never know how well the Greens really went," said Greens candidate for Braitling, Dalton Dupuy. "In a two party and conservatively dominated jurisdiction, the Greens are making their presence felt."
"What is clear, with fewer candidates than in 2012, the Greens were still able to make inroads in the seats they stood for," said Mr. Dupuy. "And it bodes well for the future. A Green tide is coming."
