La­bor not con­ced­ing to Green

The Observer - - NATION NEWS -

QUEENS­LAND La­bor is not con­ced­ing in Mai­war and may ask for a re­count de­spite Greens can­di­date Michael Berk­man claim­ing a his­toric vic­tory in the in­ner-west Bris­bane seat yes­ter­day. How­ever, La­bor’s Ali King con­ceded Mr Berk­man ap­peared to be in a strong po­si­tion – about 1300 votes ahead once pref­er­ences were fac­tored in – and that a re­count might not change those num­bers sig­nif­i­cantly. Mr Berk­man (pic­tured) said pur­su­ing a ban on cor­po­rate donations and hold­ing La­bor to its de­ci­sion to veto a $1 bil­lion fed­eral loan ap­pli­ca­tion by Adani were his main pri­or­i­ties.
