Early results out of the seat of Melbourne show a big lead to Greens candiate Adam Bandt, indicating that the Greens might manage to hold that seat. He currently has about 47% of the vote with Labor on 24% which should, even if Mr. Bandt doesn’t get over 50%, get him across the line on preferences.
Eden-Monaro is close, with Liberal candidate Peter Hendy holding a 3% lead on first preferences (43-40) over Labor’s Mike Kelly, but with preference predictions looking like they might just keep Mike Kelly in the seat.
Hume is very comfortably going to Angus Taylor for the Liberal Party with 53% of first preferences and nobody else even coming close.
