The ABC radio news has lead its bulletin with news that the Greens MLA-elect from Ginninderra, Meredith Hunter, will lead the party in the Legislative Assembly.
This despite Shane Rattenbury pulling in 9555 votes in Molonglo at 0.9 of a quota compared to Meredith’s 6125 votes at 0.6 of a quota.
On the other hand one man being the leader of three women might not have been the look The Greens were going for.
