Labor Senator for the ACT                              Labor Candidate for Warringah

 As Chief Minister of the ACT, entered into            This Labor candidate opposes his own party’s
        a Coalition Government with the Greens,                policy on the Adani coal mine and endorses
        which included giving the Greens five Cabinet          the Greens’ policy to oppose it:
        portfolios.

        “The targets that we set in the election               Bill Shorten has conceded Labor got it wrong:
        campaign were the targets that Greens had
        also set, so in that sense, being a green,
        progressive government is a badge that we
        would wear with some pride.” 17

 Ms Gallagher said having sole Green MLA
        Shane Rattenbury as a minister in cabinet had
        also been “smoother than I thought it would
        be …I thought that it would create more
        problems than it has,” she said…

        “Mr Rattenbury said he did not believe his
        ministerial role had lessened his ability to
        represent the ACT Greens.” 18
