“Huge erosion” of the first advantage supports “worry about the future”


Former Labor Minister Graham Richardson says it is “very worrying” that both major political parties have noticed a “huge erosion” of support for their first preferences.

“I think it’s a concern for the future – if the trend continues, then who knows where we will be in the next election,” he told Sky News presenter Chris Smith.

Mr Richardson says he likes the idea of ​​certainty in parliament.

“I like the idea that I know that in parliament a government will have a majority and will be able to run and run properly – run without such interference and interruptions that are caused by too many independent people on top of the house.”
