Learn from poor performance: Hodgman

Incoming Premier Will Hodgman has used his first press conference since the election to tell Labor and the Greens to learn from their poor performance at the poll.

``There's no doubt the result for Labor and Greens was right up there for poor performance,'' Mr Hodgman said.

``I think it's about time that Labor and the Greens started listening to Tasmanians. They were sent a very clear message on the weekend.

They are no longer the government and there is new way of doing business in this state.''

The Greens' numbers are likely to be reduced to three, one short of what's required to be recognised as a party in state parliament.

Mr Hodgman said the Greens entitlement to resources would have to be reduced accordingly.

Mr Hodgman also provided an update on progress on the first 100 day action lan.

He said he had written to the head of the Department of Premier and Cabinet requesting a directive be prepared establishing jobs as the new government's number one priority.

``We are certainly hitting the ground running.''

Forestry has dominated the first few days of the new government, which will not be sworn in until the final result is declared next week.

The Liberal leadership team will meet with forestry industry representatives on Thursday, but Mr Hodgman has refused to meet with environment groups.
