The proportion of votes received by minor political parties in Australia has continued to increase in recent years, according to a study by the Grattan Institute. The study contends that if the major parties want to reverse this trend they need to come up with policies that help to restore voters’ trust in government, rather than resort to populist policies. The Grattan Institute notes that while an increase in support for minor parties overseas has tended to coincide with economic problems, this has not been the case in Australia.
