Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has claimed victory in the state election that as delivered a landslide win to the Labor Party.

The ALP appears to have won up to 8 seats from the coalition and looks likely to hold 55 seats in the 88-seat Legislative Assembly, a victory equal to the Bracks majority in 2006.

Andrews’ 2014 victory gave the ALP 47 seats, an absolute majority of six. It now looks set to govern with a majority of 22.

The government’s two-party-preferred vote is like to be around 57%, exceeding the 54.39% vote achieved by Bracks in 2006.

This is the speech Andrews delivered to supporters in Melbourne.
