Green parties disappoint at Senate elections
The Green Party, recently flushed with success from its parliamentary election results has failed to repeat the result in the upper house vote.
A series of runoff votes this weekend sees the established parties take their seats - the Greens missed out.
They already have 4 seats in the Senate after the first round – but failed to improve on that.
There are still 4 seats to be allocated – those votes will be held this Sunday.
