Summary What a minority government could mean for Australia?It's a hung parliament. Four independents and a Greens MP will be critical in determining who forms government.'A new gang of four is in town, but I assure you, we act for good, not evil," said Rob Oakeshott, one of the gang at the National Press Club a few days ago. Insight will examine what a minority government will mean for stable government in this country. A range of players from across the political spectrum will dissect the realities of this extraordinary federal result, in the context of state political history and the sustainability of such a government. As Tony Windsor has said, "The people have had their say. They want a parliament for three years. I'm not interested in having a parliament for three weeks. We'll call it off now, if that's the case."
