We Love To See It: Greens Leader Adam Bandt Has Kept His Seat Of Melbourne


The odds were always in Adam Bandt‘s favour to keep his very safe seat of Melbourne at this year’s federal election but hey, I’m not one to poo-poo a hit of serotonin.

The ABC has called Melbourne for the Greens with 52 per cent of the primary vote, ahead of Labor who’s next with 25 per cent.

Bandt has held the seat since 2010, making it a “very safe” green seat.

He has just posted his thank you to his constituents on Twitter.

Bandt beat Liberal candidate James Damches and Labor candidate Keir Paterson.

Bandt has been the only Greens candidate in the House of Representatives since 2010 but this time there’s a real possibility he could be joined by another fellow Greens member.
