      Probably because, as I understand it, preferencing is
      not optional in federal elections, so the Greens will
      be required to give preferences to the ALP at some

      Is there likely to be similarity if the DSP has always
      (at least in regular elections, where government is at
      stake) advocated preferencing the ALP, as Nick F
      pointed out, whereas the Greens have not done so
      consistently? Difference in result suggests difference
      in cause. The obvious point is the DSP does not think
      the major parties are "all-the-same" in the sense that
      is frequently (mis-)represented on this list - that
      is, with regard to their methods of supporting
      capitalism, from whom they draw support and so on.
