Big night for Liberals

Written By miftah nugraha on Minggu, 05 Mei 2013 | 19.55

THE Liberal party has gained a seat and a long-serving independent has survived a campaign to unseat him in the Legislative Council elections.

Tasmanians went to the polls yesterday in the Greater Hobart seats of Nelson and Pembroke and the North-West seat of Montgomery.

In Nelson, Jim Wilkinson looks to have retained the seat with about 49 per cent of votes.

Mr Wilkinson was challenged by Greens candidate Tom Baxter (25 per cent), and independents Helen Richardson (17 per cent) and Hans Willink (8 per cent).

In Pembroke, Liberal MLC Vanessa Goodwin seems assured of victory with 51 per cent of votes.

Independent candidate and former Labor MLC Allison Ritchie had 36 per cent of votes, while Greens candidate Wendy Heatley had 13 per cent.

Liberal candidate for Montgomery Leonie Hiscutt looks set to gain the North-West seat vacated by retiring Legislative Council president independent Sue Smith.

At the end of counting last night, Mrs Hiscutt had 45.5 per cent of votes.

Her nearest rival was independent and Central Coast Deputy Mayor Cheryl Fuller.

Independents Kevin Morgan and Ed Vincent had secured 14.5 per cent and 10 per cent of votes respectively.
