The Green party has been on the rise in this election campaign - its current average polling of 12.8 percent is enough to bring 16 MPs into the Parliament. The party's key policies include replacing the Emissions Trading Scheme with a Carbon Tax, increasing the minimum wage and a national lunch fund for decile 1 - 4 schools.
