Whish-Wilson gains highest Greens Senate result across Australia

Australian Greens

Today it is finally official: lutruwita/Tasmania’s federal election preferences have been formally distributed and Greens Senator Peter Whish-Wilson has been re-elected to the Senate in third position. 

Quotes attributable to Greens Senator for lutruwita/Tasmania, Peter Whish-Wilson:

“The Greens’ Senate quota in Tassie has officially come in at 15.48%. This is our Party’s highest Senate result across all of Australia. 

“In real terms the Greens’ Senate vote in lutruwita/Tasmania climbed almost 25% from 2019.

“I’m honoured that my below the line first-preference vote was the highest of all Tasmanian Senators, including Eric Abetz who has served as a Tasmanian Senator for 28 years. 

“This magnificent result is down to all those who worked hard and supported the Greens this election. Supporters, volunteers, staff, candidates, and so many others. I extend a very big thank you to you all. 

“This election people backed the Greens in record numbers and delivered a massive mandate for action on climate. Big opportunities now lie ahead for us to get outcomes for our planet and its people, and to be part of a progressive political chapter in this nation’s history – one that does politics differently, and breaks the state capture of our parliament by powerful vested interests.”
