The Greens have grown in strength as an electoral force in the last decade. Some of the discussion about this has sought to comprehend the party and its support base as a 'left bloc' political formation. An understanding of the process of the formation of the party further illuminates this analysis. It also helps to explain the 'dry years' of the party in the 1990s. This paper will consider the history of the origins of the Greens and what that suggests about its course for success in winning broader support.
