QUEENSLAND RESULT UNKNOWN

 

Queensland election outcome likely to remain unknown for days.


It could be days before a result emerges in the Queensland election, amid the possibility that neither Labor nor the LNP will be in a position to guarantee a parliamentary majority.

At the close of counting last night, the ABC's election computer gave 43 seats to Labor, 38 to the LNP and two to Katter's Australian Party (KAP), with another 10 seats still in doubt.

The 93-seat Parliament requires 47 seats for a narrow majority.

Vote counting resumes at 9:00am this morning.

Assistant Electoral Commissioner Dermot Tiernan said about 400,000 postal votes still needed to be counted and could delay the result in some seats.

"That is about 12 per cent of the roll and they have 10 days to come in, so it could be quite a while for those close seats before we can make a firm declaration," he said.

In one of the biggest surprises, One Nation is yet to win a single seat, despite predictions the party would hold the balance of power, although it remains a contender in the central Queensland seat of Mirani.

Both major party leaders spoke boldly and confidently to supporters last night, but while Labor leader Annastacia Palaszczuk went closest to speaking of victory she could still voice no more than hope for such an outcome.
