The 2022 election on the weekend saw a surge of successful independent candidates make their way to the top of the pile, with the crossbench set to expand to at least 14 – from just eight in the previous Parliament.

The “teal” Independents and the surprise success of the Greens in Queensland has put the major parties both on notice.

Allegra Spender (pictured centre) who campaigned successfully against Liberal Dave Sharma in Wentworth typified the stance of the “teals”, with a focus on climate action and a federal integrity commission.

Spender’s victory over Sharma was just one of a slew of victories for the teals on the night.

EXPLAINED: Who are the ‘teal candidates’ in the 2022 federal election?
