Lidia Thorpe - Speech in parliament: I would like to congratulate and thank all the members and volunteers in the federal Batman campaign, particularly the Greens volunteers who worked tirelessly throughout the campaign.
I would like to congratulate Ged Kearney on her win and also congratulate Alex Bhathal on being a fantastic candidate. She was a candidate from the grassroots, a candidate who has lived and worked in the area for just under 30 years and a candidate who will continue to work very hard for her community.
Our volunteers showed strength and camaraderie in pulling together throughout that campaign, given it was such a tough campaign, and for being able to come together at the end of that is a great party to continue on our next journey. I would like to thank all the Greens volunteers who helped out in Batman and look forward to our next journey
