Alex Greenwich, the former convener of Australian Marriage Equality (AME), won the seat of Sydney on Saturday. Greenwich married his partner in Argentina in May.
      More than 48 per cent of voters chose Mr Greenwich in as independent MP for Sydney in Saturday's poll, with the Clover Moore-backed candidate finishing with a two-party preferred vote of just under 65 per cent. The result was a stinging defeat for the O'Farrell government and its candidate Shayne Mallard.
