The Victorian branch comprises two major wings:the parliamentary wing and the organisational wing. The parliamentary wing comprising all elected party members in the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council,which when they meet collectively constitute the party caucus. The parliamentary leader is elected from and by the caucus,and party factions have a strong influence in the election of the leader. The leader's position is dependent on the continuing support of the caucus (and party factions) and the leader may be deposed by failing to win a vote of confidence of parliamentary members. By convention,the premier sits in the Legislative Assembly,and is the leader of the party controlling a majority in that house. The party leader also typically is a member of the Assembly,though this is not a strict party constitutional requirement.
