Federal Election - UPDATE

UPDATE:

Liberal MP Dan Tehan has retained the seat of Wannon as the Scott Morrison coalition government defies pre election polls to win the 2019 Federal election.

Mr Tehan won Wannon convincingly with an increased margin of 1.3 percent two party preferred, and .8 percent increase on first preferences.

He says it's a humbling result but the most important thing is that the people of Wannon have said that they want good governance in their electorate.

Mr Tehan says he thanks the voters for putting their trust in him and he promises to work for them and with them in the next three years.

He says the Federal coalition turned around this election, led by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, by listening to the Australian people and addressing peoples concerns.

EARLIER:

The seat of Wannon looks set again to have been won by Liberal MP, Dan Tehan, edging out four other candidates in this weekend’s Federal Election.

The Wannon electorate is one of the safest Liberal seats in the country.

Mr Tehan was the favourite to win and the current Minister for Education was pitted against Labor’s Maurice Billi, Zephlyn Taylor from the Greens, the United Australia Party’s Joshua Wallace and Independent Alex Dyson.

The 51-year-old took office in August 2010 and has fulfilled many roles for the Liberal Party in that time.

With votes still being counted in the Federal election, his future role within the party is still to be determined.
