When Labor MP David Feeney resigned over dual citizenship concerns, it sparked a by-election in the Melbourne seat of Batman. With the Greens polling well in the electorate, it was thought the party had a good chance of upstaging Labor’s candidate, Ged Kearney.

After this result, Greens leader Richard di Natale called for a purge in the party.
