Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard signed an agreement with the Greens Party. This secures support for a Labor minority government.

The deal was signed Wednesday morning by Greens Member of Parliament, Adam Bandt and Gillard. The deal with the Greens means Labor is now three seats short of the 76-seat majority it needs to form government.

Responding to the agreement, Opposition Leader Tony Abbott accused the two parties of agreeing to a deal before the election. He says many of the promises Gillard made to Greens Leader Bob Brown were already Coalition policy.
