Three independent deputies and one from the green party decide about the future Australian government. In the election last Sunday neither the governing Labor party nor the conservative Liberals could win a majority.
This current draw between the two big parties puts some independent delegates in an unique and powerful position. On Tuesday the three legislators met in Canberra to reflect whether to support government or opposition.
As all of the three independents are delegates from urban areas, health care, education and Internet access will be the issues to tip the scale.
