It seems, at this point in time, that Australia may have a hung parliament.
The Greens, the Nick Xenophon team and other independents are likely to hold the balance of power. Some see that as unstable.
I see that as the voice of ordinary Australians exerting itself over the clash and hullabaloo of the major parties fighting each other for power, often at the expense of the little guys.
For as long as it remains a possibility, I am still hopeful of a change of leadership. If those standing up for compassion, justice and a positive response to the challenges of living in the 21st century are able to have a significant influence, even better.
