I don't think it matters which member of parliament, as long as they are willing to take our (Linux/OS community) concerns/issues etc to parliament on behalf of us. 

Act is not my choice when it comes to voting time, but if Act will help create parliamentry awareness, then sweet.   Likewise with Greens... the more the merrier. 

Just my thoughts on that.
