In 2010 Adam Bandt in the seat of Melbourne claimed the GREENS first ever seat in the house of representatives.
Adam declared his historic win had returned compassion for asylum seekers and concern for the environment to the national agenda.
ABOUT ADAM BANDT
I live and work in Melbourne. As a barrister and former partner in a major national law firm, I've dedicated years to public interest campaigning and workplace rights, fighting the exploitation of sweatshop labour and increasing the wages of our lowest paid workers.
I will be a stronger representative for Melbourne than a Labor politician forced to toe the factional or party line.
My priorities for Melbourne will kickstart a 21st-century clean energy boom and help accelerate Australia's transition to a world-leading sustainable economy. I will advocate for Melbourne residents' real values on issues like refugees, health, water & public transport.
Melbourne is special. As we saw at the last election, we live in the only seat in the country where the choice isn't between Labor and Liberal: it's between Labor and The Greens. That means this election, all eyes will be on us - and your vote is incredibly powerful.
If one in ten voters change their vote from Labor to the Greens we will have a big impact on national politics.
Join us in making history by sending the first lower house Greens MP to Canberra elected at a general election.
Adam stands for:
-:- repowering Melbourne with clean renewable energy
-:- redirecting 25-50% of federal roads funds to fix and build public transport
-:- expanding community childcare in Melbourne
-:- increasing Youth Allowance and Newstart
-:- better trains, more bikes and electric cars
-:- urgent action on climate change
-:- compassionate treatment of refugees
-:- standing up for your rights: full rights for same-sex marriage, protecting your rights at work and keeping the internet open
