​28 June 2017 - Statement on Federal Party Room decision​

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 | Convenor

We believe the decision of Australian Greens party room tonight is unconstitutional. 

We understand some federal MPs wish to review our governance. We do not believe there is support within the party to change either the Australian Greens or Greens NSW constitutions. There is a process for reviewing each constitution, and we are disappointed the federal party room is not following this process.

We are very proud of our stance in favour of public education and our commitment to participatory democracy. We are proud of our democratically elected Senator Lee Rhiannon.

We look forward to working with all members and supporters across the country to find consensus on these issues. 

The Greens NSW State Delegates Council will be meeting on 8-9 July 2017 to discuss a formal Greens NSW position.
