finally Australia has a new government

Finally, Australia has a new government since the election 17 days ago. Labor is the government, but just.

Labor 76; Coalition 74

For Don's information, Tony Abbott (Coalition) won the primary vote, the two-party preferred vote, and the seat count, but not the prime ministership.
Sounds familiar? Ten years ago in Don's American presidential election, which Candidate Al Gore had more overall votes (countrywide), but the final Florida recount after a few recounts showed that Candidate George W. Bush had about 500 more votes. Then there were ballet design issues.

The above screenshot pretty much sums up the Federal Election. Labor just had enough seats to govern, but with three Independents and one Green; the Coalition has 74 seat with one from Independent.

Of Don's interest, the National Broadband Network (from Labor) was one of the deal markers that won the independents' support.

Well, many predicted this minority government won't last.
