Research conducted by the Australia Institute suggests that Labor will not be able to rely on a voting bloc with the Greens to get legislation passed by the Senate if it wins the next election. The Institute predicts that Labor and the Greens will have at best 38 senators between them, which is not enough for a majority. As a result, Labor would be required to enter into negotiations with crossbencher to get legislation passed in the same manner that the Coalition has had to do since 2013.
