On 7 September 2010, the Independents Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott announced they would support a Gillard Labor minority government.
See Hawker Britton’s paper, Labor Government and the Post-Election Outlook, for details about the election outcome, the agreements made and the outlook for the Gillard Government’s first term.
The Parliamentary Library has released an excellent Research Paper on the rise of Independent Members of Parliament. It can be accessed here for those interested.
