In our coverage of the Australian election campaign, The Interpreter may have erred in assuming that international readers grasped the nuances of our political landscape as well as Australian readers do.

So just to retrospectively cover that line of criticism, here's an explanatory animated video from some crazy Taiwanese news service. (Thanks to Danielle for the link.)

Oh, and in case foreign readers were interested in the actual result, Australia has a hung parliament. More soon on the implications for Australia's place in the world.
