The Canberra Times reports what’s been rumbling in the Green blogosphere for a few days now.
They don’t have a leader.
A reasonably involved public observer might have thought it was Shane Rattenbury. He seemed to do more media and was put up for the Chief Minister’s debate.
But it seems that is not the case:
- The Canberra Times understands the Greens’ three Members-elect Shane Rattenbury, Meredith Hunter and Amanda Bresnan met for about four hours yesterday to discuss the party’s leadership and their strategy for negotiations with the two major parties. Greens spokesman Tom Burmester said the discussions were set to continue.
But before they can really talk turkey with the majors they are going to need a leader, and that might have to wait until they know about the potential second seat in Molonglo.
It could be a long wait.
