The Green Party was formed in 1989 by amalgamating the six state Green parties and a number of small fringe parties. At the 1991 federal election, the party won two Senate seats, and in 1995 the party won its first seat in the House of Commons. At the double-dissolution election of 1999 the Greens lost all their parliamentary representation. In 2002, the Greens elected two MPs - Greg Downes and Jessica Starr - to the House of Commons but failed to win a Senate seat. A small number of Labour Senators, and one MP, joined the Greens when the Labour Party collapsed. At the 2005 election, Downes was narrowly defeated by the Conservative candidate in his seat, and Starr lost her seat by a large margin to the Liberal Democrats.

Structure and leadership[]

The Greens leadership follows a largely collective model based on consensus, however, it does have a single federal leader. The leadership is elected by the membership of the party, while the deputy leadership is elected by parliamentarians. If the federal leader is not a parliamentarian (which has never happened), a parliamentarian must be deputy leader. 

Senator Helen Hollis was elected the party's fourth leader in 2019. There are two co-deputy leaders, Taylor Yates MP and Senator Dana Nathan.

The party's members elect a National Committee, which is presided over by a National Convener. The National Convener acts as the party's chief executive.
