How have we assessed the parties’ policies?

We wrote to each of the main parties (based on whether they hold seats in the Queensland Parliament and whether they are running in a majority of seats). The Australian Labor Party, The Liberal National Party and The Greens were the only parties to respond to the substance of our letter.

See the party policies behind the scores here.
