Australian Federal Election Scoreboard 1901-2013
Elections = 44
Rank = Position
Team = As registered at the election
Percentage Wins = Greater percentage at election
Seat Wins = Greater seats at election
GeLo = Percentage Wins + Seat Wins
GeLo Avg = Team Average
If the GeLo is equal then rank is based on previous rank
Election rankings based on Australian Electoral Commission Electoral Pocket Book
Australia's Federal Parliament is devoted to serving the wishes of the people of Australia. Since Australia became a Federation in 1901, Australia's Federal Parliament House has been host to ideas, information, and opinion.
Ranked political teams, past and present, can come to see themselves as experts. They can be extremely reluctant to lose their participation in which they have contributed over a long period of time, and becoming an expert requires time.
Such teams are assets, in that they realise they are part of a larger context of parliament and are familiar with the values and practices of parliament.
They have the skills to engage with the public, can live with the bureaucratic process, can make sense of policy and strategy and contribute to it, understand the trade offs of working in a political domain, and a place with which they have significant history.
Good parliament, respectful behaviour and adherence to high ethical standards, contribute to building trust so that people have the confidence to vote for the team they identify with because they realise their fate, destiny, and history are determined to a substantial extent by the parliament.
The Australian Federal Election Scoreboard maintains an impartial and independent measure of peoples electoral wishes. This way, the distortion of subjective assessment is eliminated and a reliable result is obtained.
We need to show the proper respect for earned rank to have order and discipline so therefore government must be awarded by rank.

Have you read My Thoughts?
My Thoughts is a collection of thoughts by Theo Pertsinidis... thoughts on issues that are affecting my life... enough to write and publish.
Advocacy is an approach to policy development. The end game is fulfillment.
Policies are created to help us. Policies created to help follow the rules can be too complex or hard to follow. If policies are complex and not well understood and the amount of documentation written in complex or abstract notation is out of control... People find it necessary to cut corners and skip important practices to stay on schedule.
When people ignore the rules they are instinctively moving away from complex policies to simpler policies.
But we don't want to forget what we have learned. We can choose to keep the rules that help us create quality policies and throw away or modify those that hinder our progress. We can simplify those rules that seem too complex to follow.
Policy participation encourages understanding and contribution to the policy design through a collection of rules and practices, all of which are easy to follow.
The policy creation environment must promote freedom to be creative and productive but remain organised and focused.
Policy creation must act in four essential ways...
• Communication... Communicate with all relevant parties
• Simplicity... Designs are kept simple
• Feedback... Get feedback from day one
• Courage... Safe practices are set up to minimise risk for confident responses
If a new policy is needed by a specific date the risk is high. If the policy is a new challenge the risk is even greater. If the policy is a new challenge to an entire industry the risk is even greater still.
Policy practices are set up to minimise the risk and increase the likelihood of success.
