Queensland’s Labor Premier, Peter Beattie, has routed the coalition parties in an historic election landslide in which the ALP is likely to win around 65 seats in the 89-seat Parliament.
The election has reduced the Opposition parties to rumps. The Liberal Party is only assured of two seats and the National Party ten.
One Nation is likely to win two seats and four others have been won by independents.
Opposition Leader, Rob Borbidge, has conceded defeat in his Surfers Paradise electorate, losing to a 19-year-old Labor candidate. Liberal Leader, David Watson, is struggling to hold his seat.
