Low turnout, low impact for opposition picket

MPs-elect are gathered inside parliament for the first session.

Less than a hundred opposition supporters were standing in front of parliament when the first group of MPs arrived at about 7:30 a.m.

The mostly older crowd spent time debating whether the men in suits who could be seen entering parliament from behind were in fact MPs, and if so, whether they were supposed to stop them.

A pair of campaigners approached the entrance to shout down the arriving MPs. One was taken away in a squad car in the only notable incident of the morning.

By 10 a.m. no more than several hundred had gathered.
