Federal Election: Latest Results In Key Seats

Counting is proceeding in the federal election. These are the latest results as of Monday evening, September 9.

The table shows the seats that have definitely changed hands and those that are still in doubt.

The ALP began the election with 72 seats. It has lost 13 seats so far: Bass, Braddon, Lyons, Deakin, La Trobe, Corangamite, Hindmarsh, Petrie, Dobell, Robertson, Page, Lindsay and Banks. It has 5 seats in doubt: Capricornia, Barton, Eden-Monaro, Reid and McEwen.

The Coalition began with 73 seats. It has gained the 13 seats listed above as well as New England and Lyne. It has lost 1 (Fairfax) and has 1 (Indi) in doubt.

The Greens have retained their single seat (Melbourne). The 4 independents have been reduced to 2 (Denison and Kennedy). The Palmer United Party has 1 seat (Fairfax).

Of the doubtful seats, it is most likely that the independent will win Indi. The Liberals are most likely to win Eden-Monaro and Reid. The other seats are too close to call and will require the full count of ordinary, pre-poll, postal, absentee and provisional votes.
