WA Senate results show swing away from major parties
THE Greens and the Palmer United Party (PUP) have emerged as the big winners after Western Australia's Senate election re-run.
On projected results the Greens have picked up a 6.7 per cent swing, which would ensure Scott Ludlam retains his Senate seat.
PUP also looks to have picked up a seat with a swing towards the party of about 7 per cent.
The projected data from the ABC's election analyst Antony Green showed the Liberals and the ALP had falls of 5.6 and 5 per cent respectively.
"The overall balance between the two parties, it looks like it's going to be exactly the same as it was last September," he said.
