And finally, Australia has decided who’d be the Prime Minister after the election in August 2010. The close result between Labor Party and the coalition gave a mighty power to the Greens the independents to decide who could govern. It triggered me to do the research on the history of the result and present as a motion graphics. I was going to add more complex data such as the senate seats but that would come along later.
