[8.37pm] A spokesman for Richmond MP Justine Elliot says they have been encouraged by the results so far which are ‘looking positive’.
Mrs Elliot, who has held the seat since 2004, is looking like holding onto her seat.
With just over half the votes (51.02 per cent) counted, Mrs Elliot was still leading on a two-party preferred basis with 54.45 per cent (16, 243 primary votes) ahead of the Nationals Matthew Fraser with 45.55 per cent (16,635 primary votes).
The Greens’ Dawn Walker had gained almost 20 per cent of the primary vote with a 2.85 per cent swing (9,382 primary votes).
Mrs Elliot’s spokesman said they were waiting for one of the largest booths for the electorate, at Centaur Primary School in Banora Point, to be counted to get a better picture of the likely outcome.
