Voters give WA Greens record vote

Giz Watson says the result demonstrates community concern about the environment.

WA Greens MP Giz Watson says she is very pleased with the party's record success at the poll.

The Greens look set to receive about 11 or 12 per cent of the vote, which is about 5 per cent more than the last election, and should give them between 3 and 5 upper house seats.

Ms Watson says the result demonstrates the level of community concern about environmental issues.

"Climate change is an issue that people are very concerned about," she said.

"We ran very strongly on the looking for solutions in action on climate change, I think that's what people voted for us to do."
