Liberals Take 48-Vote Lead In Aston

July 15, 2001

The Liberal Party candidate, Chris Pearce, has taken a 48-vote lead in latest counting in Saturday's Aston by-election. Pearce has 50.04% of the two-party-preferred vote, compared to 49.96% for the Labor candidates, Kieran Boland.

Votes from mobile hospital booths were counted today, enabling the Liberal candidate to reverse the 14-vote overnight lead held by the ALP. Hospital and nursing home booths with their elderly populations historically favour the conservative parties.

Counting of postal, pre-poll and provisional votes will begin on Monday. There are around 10,000 of these. They are also likely to favour the Liberal Party, giving victory in the seat to Pearce.
