One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has started the blame game who’s party failed to win any seat in WA lower house. The people of WA rejected Liberal party policies and punished Liberals which lost a seat in every single region and 2 each in East Metro and South West region.
Labor and Greens are the biggest beneficiaries of WA 2017 election. However when this report was compiled both sitting members of sitting Greens MLCs are currently on track to lose. Liberal had -15 swing, National -.7 and One Nation 4.7 in the primary vote. Labor Party set to win 40 seats (10 more than required), Liberal Party 11 seats, National Party 5 seats and One Nation not expected to pickup any seat.
The trend in upper house however is different, it will be a diversify from previous election. One Nation is set to pickup a seat in upper house and other minor parties such as Shooters, Fishers and Farmers party, Liberal Democrats, Fluoride free WA. Labor and Greens may be in position to make the equation simpler.
