Farrer & Nicholls Results

In a result the polls did not predict the Liberal-National Party Coalition has retained government at the 2019 Federal Election.

Locally, the biggest question was whether the seat of Farrer would remain in the hands of Liberal candidate Sussan Ley.

Albury Mayor Kevin Mack was hoping to make the seat Independent, displacing the long-serving Liberal, who has held the seat since 2001.

Despite the challenge, which even betting websites had at tight odds, Ley retains Farrer comfortably with over 60% of the vote, two-party preferred.

Addressing her supporters in Albury, Ms Ley said she felt “incredibly grateful, incredibly proud and incredibly happy” to have retained the seat.

In Nicholls, Nationals candidate Damian Drum has retained his seat for a second term, following his election in 2016.

Labor Party’s Bill Lodwick was hoping to take the position and be the first non-coalition representative for the seat in history.

Despite this, Mr Drum retains Nicholls with over 69% of the vote, two-party preferred.

In first preference results, One Nation candidate Rikkie-Lee Tyrell came out with an 11.3% swing, falling behind Labor and the Nationals.
