Federal Election Results
In a result that many 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 Indi would remain independent with the resignation of Cathy McGowan.
It was a tight race with Liberal Steve Martin narrowly ahead on the primary vote, however on a two-party preferred basis the Cathy McGowan-endorsed Independent, Helen Haines, has claimed victory in the seat.
The seat of Indi has now made election history, with no other seat since Federation having been won by Independent candidates back to back.
