Abstract

It was a national election featuring many firsts: the first hung Parliament since 1941; the first female prime minister facing popular election; the election of the country’s youngest MP; the first Greens MP; the first Muslim MP; and the first Aboriginal MP. Yes, 109 years after Australia was made a federation, the first indigenous person, Ken Wyatt, was elected to the Federal House of Representatives ­­ on a conservative Liberal Party ticket
