Australia essentially has what political scientists call a two-party dominant political system, with the Liberals and the Nationals generally acting as one. Minority governments are consequently rare nationally, and Greens support for minority governments rarer still. But it happened after the 2010 election, when the voters deserted an unpopular Labor government but didnít flock to the Coalition, leaving neither party able to form government on its own.
