Victorian Greens leader Samantha Ratnam has spruiked the virtues of multi-party governments in response to questions about forming a coalition with the Labor party.
The party has new muscle after winning the seat of Northcote from the ALP in Saturday’s by-election.
Asked whether the Greens had their eye negotiating a cabinet seat or coalition with Labor party, Ms Ratnam told Neil Mitchell “we’ll consider all the options as they come”.
“We’re seeing across the world that multi-party government is actually become the norm,” she said.
“We want to see a progressive government. We want to see real action on big issues.
“(Northcote voters) liked us talking about big ideas and the big issues.”
