With the redistributions now complete in Victoria and Western Australia, it is time to publish an updated electoral pendulum for the 2022 election.
The redistributions have abolished the WA Liberal seat of Stirling and created the new notionally Labor held seat of Hawke in Victoria. I have previously published posts summarising the redistributions in both states, for Victoria here and for Western Australia here.
The net change in seats compared to the 2019 election result is that the Liberal Party has been reduced from 77 to 76 seats by the abolition of Stirling, while Labor increases from 68 to 69 seats with the creation of Hawke. In the 151 member House of Representatives, 76 seats are needed for majority government.
As well as the web formatted election inside the post, I have also provide a ‘pdf’ version of the pendulum with seats listed in double-sided A4 format. You can find it at this link.Read More »2022 Federal Electoral Pendulum
