ACT election result yet to be decided

The result of the ACT election won’t be known for up to a week, with the Liberals and Labor both looking to the Greens to form a minority government.

With around 80 per cent of the votes counted after Saturday’s election, the Labor and Liberal parties each hold seven seats in the 17 seat parliament. 

Leader of the ACT Liberals Zez Sseselja says it shows ACT voters are rejecting the ruling Labor government and the Greens

But Chief Minister Katy Gallagher has dismissed this claim, saying Labor and the Greens together make up 52 per cent of the vote.

Analysts are predicting a Labor-Greens minority government will be formed.
