increased our vote, we' ve held our towards
seats and we' ve seen a swing G
towards us. At the expense of the a
Greens. We had hoped we would see earli
a stronger trend for the Greens g
earlier in the night but let' s not ju
give up hope at this point, let' s fa
just see how it all pans out. So of
far the Liberals have seen a swing f
of more than seven percent in their six

six per cent. It' s predicated to Liberal
equate to eight seats for the tw
Liberal party, seven for Labor and
two for the Greens. Because we' v we'
had over 58,000 electronic votes tho
we' ve distributed preferences in in
those votes, that' s given us some obvi
indication f the likely outcome, story
obviously that' s not the whole preference
story, there' s a lot more Brinda
preferences to go in yet. In

Chris Bourke trailing in second o

and Vicki Dunne likely to be p
re-elected. Over to Molonglo, Early
predictions are Labor' s three seat achie

the Liberals, candidates Giulia to

seventh seat likely to be Shane w
Rattenbury' s. Because we have to
wait until Friday for all the posta ll
votes to come in the earliest we' Can

Now for a look at what' s happened W
since Saturday night I' m joined by Du
WIN' s ACT Political Reporter Luke at
Dufficy. Luke, firstly let' s look hug
at the Liberal Party. There was a tea
huge swing towards Zed Seselja' s Gre
team but does he really think the Daniel
Greens may side with him? Well earlie
Danielle, ... I spoke with Zed earlier today, here' s

earlier today, here' s some of what
he had to say. We' ve never see ACT
a situation where a party in the ACT Assembly has had eight seats an un
been in Opposition. This would be tradit
unprecedented. It has been the mos
tradition that the party with the Government
most number of seats forms be
Government. It would certainly s
be preferable I think if we were to sort of, put a pause on it for 24 t sta
48 hours because once that count preference
starts in earnest and that you
preference count start in earnest y
you do start to see some trends and s
you do get an idea of which way it' be
s pushing. Certainly we won' t
be selling out our principles, I' v made that very clear. I' ve made i paramet
clear that there are certain ar
parameters that we will be putting goi
around negotiations, but I' m not tha
going to get into the minutiae of that at this point.

Now Luke, what about the Labor Party? Is Katy Gallagher

Party? Is Katy Gallagher Mini
confident?Here' s what the Chief
Minister said when she addressed th us
media today. They' re telling us the Green vote is going to Labor S
the Labor vote goes to the Greens. So you can see people who vote Gree L
as their first choice tend to vote Labor as their second and so I thin stron
in that sense there was a very Gree
strong progressive vote. The po
Greens are that central balance of Govern
power and whatever party forms the
Government will need to talk with th
them. So that' ll be up to them, I
think, around how they feel, whethe co
they want to see more of the vote discu
counted before they start those re
discussions. For Simon, again, hap
really early days. Strange things say
happen in Hare- Clark. I remember looks
saying that last week too. What mi
looks like being settled on Monday Frida
might not be what' s settled on th
Friday and we' ve just got to wait through that vote.

With preferences updated each
evening, we could even see Labor ge L
8 seats, the Greens one? Thank you Luke.

Luke. A number of candidates are do
looking comfortable today but that celeb
doesn' t mean they should start Gen
celebrating. ALP candidate Mick pain
Gentleman knows all too well the woul
pain of counting process. "You t
would have seen in the 2008 results
that from the pre-poll I was well i Brinda
front for a Labor position in en
Brindabella." He didn' t receive o
enough preference votes to pull him election,
over the line, meaning last Bu
election, he was bumped out by Joy wonder
Burch. "The Hare-Clarke is a around,
wonderful beast." This time com
around, Mick Gentleman is looking fiv
comfortable - he' s secured point
five of a quota - but says he won' votes
completely relax until all the votes are counted. Another candidat t
likely to be declared an MLA later be
this week - Giulia Jones. "I' ve bef
been through the counting process nerve-r
before and it' s always a bit best
nerve-racking, so hoping for the
best but just wanting to see the en number
of the count." +y There are a go
number of other candidates looking good after the first distribution o Brindabe
preferences, Andrew Wall in Ginni
Brindabella, Dr Chris Bourke in Molo
Ginninderra and Elizabeth Lee in Si
Molonglo. It' s unlikely incumbent off
Simon Corbell will be returned to s
office. He is currently the longest Ass
serving member of the Legislative
Assembly - having first been electe said
on a count back in 1996. He had quiet
said on Saturday he was feeling privile
quietly confident. "It is a fo
privilege to have been re- elected b
for the number of times that I have been but I never take any election elec
for granted and I must say, each election is just as nerve-racking a unl
the last." +y It' s also looking wi
unlikely Greens MLA Amanda Bresnan Car
will be re-elected. Her colleague
Caroline LeCouteur and Steve Doszpo from the Liberals also appear to b on the way out.

what, that' s the Hare-Clark made
system. While Tony Abbott only campai
made a brief appearance on the
campaign trail - he came out in ful ex

expect the ALP and the Greens to percen
accept that there has been a 7 the
percent swing to the Liberals and part
the Liberals are now the largest have
party in the Assembly They may but
have the highest number of seats, but they' ll need to rely on suppor difficult

difficult to say which way it' s Zed'
going to go but I think poor old h
Zed' s peddling uphill if he thinks onside.
he' s going to get the Greens country
onside. I think the whole f
country has been going conservative

seems to be a bit of a swing to the Christine

with his total misrepresentation on
