Greens make crucial Eden-Monaro preferences decision

Media Release
Adam Bandt 14 Jun 2020

In Eden-Monaro, where in 2019 Greens’ preferences were crucial in determining the final result, the Greens have made a decision about who will appear in the important ‘number 2’ spot on their How to Vote cards when voting starts tomorrow. Eden-Monaro is currently held by a margin of less than one percent. 

The Greens’ candidate, Cathy Griff, is campaigning on the climate crisis and a green-led economic recovery package, and this by-election is a golden opportunity to send a message.

The Greens will preference Labor ahead of the Liberals and Nationals, with Labor appearing in the number 2 spot on the How to Vote card.

“This is the best chance Eden-Monaro voters have to send a message about the climate crisis,” said Greens Leader, Adam Bandt.

“The government isn’t taking climate change seriously. The government is putting people’s lives and livelihoods at risk by making catastrophic bushfires more likely.”

“The people of Eden-Monaro have the most to lose if we don’t get the climate crisis under control.”

“Whoever you usually vote for, this time vote for the Greens’ Cathy Griff and send a powerful message to the government.”
