Labor is on track to win the 2020 ACT election. But while it will retain power there will be a few new faces. Here’s who appears at this stage to be in and out, as of the latest count. Keep in mind the ACT’s Hare-Clark voting system means that preference flows can mean some of these results will change as the count continues. Liberal Vicki Dunne (Ginninderra) and the Greens’ Caroline le Couteur (Murrumbidgee) retired and did not contest the election. In the Tuggeranong-based seat of Brindabella, Labor’s Taimus Werner-Gibbings is just ahead of the Greens’ Johnathan Davies. One of them is likely to replace the Liberals’ Andrew Wall. In the Belconnen-based seat of Ginninderra, the Greens’ Jo Clay is likely to replace Mrs Dunne. In the Gungahlin-based Yerrabi, the Greens’ Andrew Braddock is likely to pick up a seat at the expense of Labor’s Deepak Raj Gupta, who joined the Assembly last year as a replacement for Meegan Fitzharris. The Liberals’ Leanne Castley is likely to take the seat of sitting MLA James Milligan, although the Liberals’ strong showing in this seat could mean Mr Braddock ends up missing out instead. In the Woden and Weston Creek-based Murrumbidgee, Green Emma Davidson is set to retain Ms le Couteur’s seat, while Labor’s Marisa Paterson is likely to oust colleague Bec Cody. In the central seat of Kurrajong, the Greens have a good chance of picking up a second seat, for Rebecca Vassarotti, at the expense of the Liberals’ Candice Burch. Preferences are flowing the Greens’ way at the moment, but it’s very close and that could easily change as the count continues. The Liberals are hoping older voters were less likely to vote electronically and more likely to cast postal votes, so that they might get a late boost to help claw back some seats. The complexity of the Hare-Clark system, and the fact there are still roughly 20 per cent of the votes yet to be counted, mean the faces below could well change in coming days. READ MORE:
