House Of Representatives Vote Count Concludes

Victor P Taffa

Final counting by the Australian Electoral Commission for House of Representatives seats has concluded with a Declaration of the Poll by Returning Officers being held ahead of the return of the election writ to the Governors-General on Monday 8 August 2016.

 

The Turnbull Government has been returned to office with a reduced majority.

The Liberal and National Party Coalition led by Liberal Leader Malcolm Turnbull have secured only 76 out of 150 seats in the House of Representatives before a Parliamentary Speaker has been elected by members of the House of Representatives.

The Speaker is elected by the 150 members of the House of Representatives on the first day of Parliamentary Business once writs have been returned to the Governors-General. The Party or Parties with a majority of members can then form a Government and sits on the right hand side of the Speaker in the House of Representatives Chamber.

This list of the new House of Representatives outlines the margin that each seat was won at the 2 July 2016 Federal Election between the two final candidates in the counting of the vote.
