Western Australia Senators decided from recount

Updated: 2 November 2013

The State Manager for Western Australia, Peter Kramer, announced the results of the recount and distribution of preferences for the election of six Senators for Western Australia.

The successful candidates (and order of their election) are:

  1. David JOHNSTON – Liberal Party
  2. Joe BULLOCK – Australian Labor Party
  3. Michaelia CASH – Liberal Party
  4. Linda REYNOLDS – Liberal Party
  5. Wayne DROPULICH – Australian Sports Party
  6. Scott LUDLAM – The Greens (WA)

The distribution of preferences combined the recounted formal votes with all formal below-the-line votes that were not subject to the recount process, consistent with the Electoral Commissioner’s media statement announcing the recount of 10 October 2013.

Detailed information regarding the distribution of preferences will be posted to the AEC Virtual Tally Room as soon as it is available later today.

Mr Kramer said that the formal Declaration of the Poll for the 2013 election of Senators for Western Australia will take place at 12 midday (WST) on Monday, 4 November and will be held at the AEC State Office, Level 13, 200 St Georges Terrace, Perth.
