Tasmania is heading to an early election. Here's why you should care

The Briefing

15-02-2024 • 12 mins

Tasmania, currently the last Liberal government in the country, will head to an election more than a year earlier than planned.

Yesterday, Premier Jeremy Rockliff announced that Tasmanians will vote on March 23rd, amidst claims that the parliament has become unworkable after two former Liberal MPs ditched the party and won’t agree to pass legislation.

On today's afternoon episode of The Briefing, Tessa Randello from the Listnr newsroom joins Bension Siebert to discuss how the party in power for the last 10 years ended up in a minority, and the impact this result could have on the rest of the country.
