Western Australia: election shows little parties getting bigger

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Sun Apr 06, 2014 3:35 am

The Greens and the Palmer United Party (PUP) have emerged as the big winners after Western Australia's Senate election re-run.

On projected results the Greens have picked up a 6.7 per cent swing, which would ensure Scott Ludlam retains his Senate seat.

PUP also looks to have picked up a seat with a swing towards the party of about 7 per cent.

The projected data from the ABC's election analyst Antony Green showed the Liberals and the ALP had falls of 5.6 and 5 per cent respectively.

"The overall balance between the two parties, it looks like it's going to be exactly the same as it was last September," he said.

The Liberals appear to have secured two seats with Labor reduced to one.

Mr Green said it appeared swings away from the two major parties had transferred to the Greens and PUP.

Cool 

THE Greens and the Palmoff parties each gained over 7% on their votes from last September...

AT THE same time, Labor dropped over 5% and the Lib's over 7%..
BY MY rough reckoning, that equates to a swing of more than 15% against the conservatives !

 cheers   cheers   cheers

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Coalition give Abbott&Hockey their marching orders by the end of the year ? Maybe Malcolm Turnbull in the Lodge next year..
