Australian Election
vanity | 9th October 2004 | naturalman1975

Posted on 10/09/2004 12:47:55 AM PDT by naturalman1975

I hesitate to suggest this, as I am fairly new around here, but I have noticed that there is quite a lot of interest in the Australian eleciton, so I thought I would make an offer here. I will be watching the election coverage and if people are interested, as the coverage proceeds, I can post updates in this thread, so people can follow what is happening in Australia.

Just an offer. Coverage starts in 15 minutes.

Oh and if any other Aussies want to post updates as well, of course, I wouldn't object. It's just I can see interest.

What does a reduced result mean?

Michelle O'Byrne, Labor Member for Bass - says she is still hoping, is used to long counts (last time it took ten days!). Very close seat.

Prime Minister visited seat this week, and announced popular Forestry policy.

Reduced result = winning with a smaller amount than last time. Labor will hold the seat, but are getting less votes than at the last election, which suggests closer seats may change hands.

Nick Minchin, Liberal Minister, BIG SMILE ON FACE, things Liberals will win at least one Tasmanian seat.

Gotcha. it's still winner take all though. Seems like early results look very good. Do certain precincts hold out until the end like the Rat precincts do here?

What you call Precincts, I think are referred to as Booths here - none hold out deliberately, but some inner city ones do tend to take longer to report.

Electoratre of Page, NSW, National Party, currently shows inceased National vote on early counts. Richmond, NSW, National Party held, Labor currently shows gain, but from 'alternative lifestyle' (Hippy) booths. Gilmore, NSW, Liberal, showing some swing to Labor, but currently still safe for Liberal. Calare, NSW, Independent, should stay in his hand. NSW result currently looking fairly mixed - but count is very early.

Too many seats should start coming in soon, so I will start focusing on broad trends at this point. Early results looking reasonably positive.

Braddon and Bass in Tasmania virtually certainly to have gone to Liberal party.

Net result for Tasmania - 2 seats gained by Coalition.

Eden-Monaro - seat that has matched every Australian election result since 1972, is currently too close to call.

That's great news. From 5-0 Labor to 3-2 Labor. Where could Labor possibly make this up? What's your term for a particular seat? I know it's "riding" in Canada.

Labor will hope for gains in Queensland.

It's sure hard to root for "liberals", but I'm trying!!

Ok, so:

Howard = Liberal/Coalition
Latham = Labor (Labour?)

As far as the acronyms in this chart thingie:

"NAT" ?
ALP = "Aussie Labor Party" ?
LIB = Liberal (Howard)

NAT = National, the party that is in coalition with the Liberals to form goverment.

LIB = Liberal Party of Australian
ALB = Australian Labor Party

I think "NAT" is The Nationals -- if I'm reading this right, they're Howard's partners in the Coalition government. We want The Nationals to do well, along with the Liberals.

Also

GRN = Green

FF = Family First
OTH = Other/Independent

Only GRN and OTH currently have House of Reps seats, out of the minor groups.

Exactly - a National Party win is just as good as a Liberal Party win.

Basically Liberals are City Conservatives, Nationals are Country Conservatives.

Big concern at this point is the Green vote - Green preferences could give Labor seats.

Nick Minchin (Liberal Minister) thinks a hung parliament (neither party having an absolute majority) is the best result Labor can hope for.

Prime Ministers own seat may be in some very slight danger - slight possibility (very slight) that we could end up with a Liberal government, with the Prime Minister having to leave because he didn't get elected himself.

After one hour of counting in most populous states.

Coalition vote seems to be up 3.8%

Labor looks to need to win 15 extra mainland seats to win.

Power failure means they can't show us all their fancy graphics!

Early figures on mainland (oh, need to explain - Tasmania is an island, everything else is the mainland) showing possible Coalition gains.

The coalition have 64 seats (56 won and 8 likely). Labor et al have 39 seats.

Does Howard run independently, or is his position decided by the majority? If he runs independently, when do those returns begin?

Again, sorry for the lack of knowledge. I appreciate you having the patience to educate me!

He runs at the same time.

The Prime Minister is a normal Member of Parliament (in this case the Member for Bennelong) and can lose his seat like any other MP.

The Prime Minister is not directly elected - rather he is the Leader of the Party that controls the House of Representatives.

It is theoretically possible for the Prime Minister to lose office, by failing to win his own seat, even if his party wins. It's unlikely - but it can happen.

Isn't Labour supposed to gain seats, not lose them? Even though that doesn't mean they would win (thankfully), wasn't that the expectation coming in?

It would be so funny if Labour actually lost seats. Must be the Kerry effect. :-P

According to some experts, yes. I think he lost - but I don't think he was badly beaten.
