    I read that you need to have at least 10 seats to form opposition

    yikes! what happens if one or more of the 4 don't want to form an opposition with the ALP? that's really actually very scary.

    They won't be able to be an opposition. How will they make a shadow cabinet? I'm in NSW, but I just read they need 10 seats to be able to form opposition.

    I did also read that concessions can be made. I thought the NSW ALP lost by a landslide, but I am just at these results.

    Ugh, DHs 'friend' was running for a local seat as part of KAP. I'm glad he didn't win it, now we won't have to listen to his bigotry, sorry... I mean 'politics'.

    I would hope so, since Can Do's presence in parliament for the last 11 months has been unconventional. The people of Qld deserve to have a voice against the LNP.
