Melissa Price makes a statement on Durack seat

Liberal candidate Melissa Price, who is currently leading the vote count for the seat of Durack, has made a statement regarding the close race.

"I’m very pleased that thousands more people in Durack have voted Liberal rather than National or Labor. As a new candidate, not an incumbent, I’m very pleased to have achieved this. However, at this stage I’m not prepared to claim victory while my opponent has not yet conceded defeat."

Shane Van Styn of the Nationals has not yet conceded defeat, and is currently behind Melissa Price with 65% of the vote counted.
