2016 Federal Election - Coalition Victor (Barton Deakin brief)
Written on the 11 July 2016
Yesterday the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull claimed victory for the Coalition after Opposition Leader Bill Shorten conceded the 2016 election. This decision was based on the latest count of seats in the House of Representatives.
Counting to determine the composition of the Senate continues, and final results will emerge over the coming weeks.
On current counting, the primary vote for the Coalition was 42.1 per cent, representing a swing against the Government of 3.4 per cent since the 2013 election. The primary vote for the Labor Party is at 35.1 per cent, reflecting an increase in their primary vote of 1.8 per cent.
