first_imgSouth Australian Senator Nick Xenophon is considering advising his supporters to put the Liberal or Labor parties ahead of the Greens at the September 7 poll, making it harder for Australian Greens Senator Hanson-Young to be returned. Mr Xenophon made his intention public after a reported Bob Brown request for him to direct his preferences in the Senate to the Greens. He stated that there was an overwhelming reaction of his supporters against the Greens and the request of their former leader. If Mr Xenophon directs his preferences to the major parties, this might alter the overall balance in the senate. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img
