ACT Government Teeters; ALP Massacred In NSW By-Elections

The ACT Labor government of Jon Stanhope has lost its majority in today’s elections.

The ALP seems likely to be reduced from 10 to 7 seats in the Legislative Assembly. The Liberal Party appears to have also won 7 seats, whilst the Greens have picked up 2 seats to take their total to 3.

Negotiations between the major parties and the Greens will now determine the outcome of the election.

The ALP polled 37.6% of the primary vote, a 9.3% swing. The Liberal Party primary vote declined by 3.7% to 31.1%. The Greens vote increased by 6.6% to 15.9%.
