Preference deal adds to woes in Turnbull's battle

MALCOLM TURNBULL's chances of hanging on to the seat of Wentworth were dealt another blow yesterday when Labor formalised a preference deal with the Greens.

The Greens have agreed to preference Labor in 50 key seats across the country, including Wentworth, in a deal that will significantly boost Labor's chances of winning the election.

In return, Labor will preference the Greens in the Senate, dramatically increasing the chances of Bob Brown's party winning extra spots and seizing the balance of power.
