Abstract:

Examines the recent decline of the Labor Party and the rise of The Greens as a challenger for left leadership in Australia.The effect of neoliberal rule on Labor Party ideology and practice has left it exposed to a party active in environmental and community organising and capable of mustering the diverse groups affected by contemporary issues. The advantages of a preferential and proportional system of voting to the rise of The Greens are also noted.
