Australian Senate results

One month after the voting, we finally have a final result in the Australian election for the Senate. The results are:

  • Coalition 30 (-3)
  • Labor 26 (+1)
  • Greens 9 (-1)
  • One Nation 4 (+4)
  • Team Xenophon 3 (+2)
  • Lib Dems 1 (nc)
  • Derryn Hinch 1 (+1)
  • Family First 1 (nc)
  • Jacqui Lambie 1 (nc)
  • Palmer United 0 (-2)
  • Dem Labour (-1)
  • Motorists (-1)

There is a chance Turnbull may be able to get the union corruption bill through a combined sitting. You have 150 MPs and 76 Senators so he needs 114 votes.

The Coalition has 106 MPs and Senators. So he needs eight more. Where might they come from:

  • One Nation 4
  • Lib Dems 1
  • Derrin Hinch 1
  • Family First 1
  • Cathy McGowan (Indi)
  • Bob Katter (Kennedy)

So at best they have 115 votes. It will be very close.
