Alliance list

The Alliance has released its party list. Despite reportedly having struggled to retain 500 members, they've managed to find 30 people to contest the list, suggesting they still have a strong activist base. Unfortunately, they're fielding only 15 electorate candidates - a move which is not exactly going to add to their visibility. As a party which has collapsed since its 90's heyday, they're going to have a real problem convincing people that they're a credible electoral option and not even being on the ballot paper in most electorates is not going to help with that.
