WA Cabinet won't be named until next week

Western Australia’s newly re-elected Premier Colin Barnett says he will not think about his new cabinet line-up until after all votes from the state election are counted.

The Liberals won Saturday’s election with a landslide victory over Labor.

The ALPĀ  is only expected to retain 19 of the 59 seats in the Legislative Assembly.

But the votes in the at least 4 close seats are unlikely to be counted by Saturday, meaning a cabinet announcement won’t be made until next week.
