Greens - ALP arrangement over

9:16 am on 20 February 2013

Australian Greens leader Christine Milne said on Tuesday her party's agreement with Labor is effectively over.

In a speech to the National Press Club in Canberra, Senator Milne said it had become clear that Labor no longer had the "courage or the will" to work with the Greens on a shared national agenda.

"Labor has effectively ended its agreement with the Greens," Senator Milne said.

However, the ABC reports the Greens will continue to guarantee confidence and supply, which means the current parliament will continue until the election on 14 September.
