Morrison gets his majority

ABC now has the Coalition at 76 seats. Labor has 65 and others six.

Of the four undecided the counts are:

  • Bass – Libs lead by 467 votes with 88% counted
  • Cowan – Labor leads by 757 votes with 79% counted
  • Lilley – Labor leads by 1,113 votes with 79% counted
  • Macquarie – Libs lead by 151 votes with 87% counted

So likely to end up with 78 seats. If so, this means the Coalition will have won seven seats off Labor, only lost one to Labor and Abbott’s seat. A stunning result.

The state by state swings for Labor were:

  • NSW -2.1%
  • Victoria +1.7%
  • Queensland -3.7%
  • WA – 2.0%
  • SA +4.3%
  • Tasmania -4.0%
  • ACT -2.7%
  • NT +2.8%

The likely Senate results are:

  • Coalition 35
  • Labor 26
  • Greens 9
  • Centre Alliance 2
  • One Nation 2
  • Conservatives 1
  • Lambie 1

You need 39 votes to pass laws so the Coalition can do it with the four CR votes, plus a buffer of the Centre Alliance.
