A very tight election result in Australia with quite a few "firsts"




Australia set for first hung parliament since 1940
Greens hold balance of power in Senate with nine seats
Liberal Ken Wyatt elected first Indigenous member of Lower House in WA seat of Hasluck
Adam Bandt first Greens member elected to the Lower House at a general election
LNP's Wyatt Roy becomes youngest person ever elected to Parliament in seat of Longman at 20
Veteran Liberal MP Wilson Tuckey loses O'Connor to Nationals candidate after holding it since 1980
Labor's 2007 star recruit Maxine McKew loses seat of Bennelong

The final state of play may not be known for days, and the three re-elected independents - Rob Oakeshott, Tony Windsor and Bob Katter - have vowed to work with whichever party can provide stable government.
After a night of surprises and firsts, whichever party forms government will also have to deal with a Greens member, after Adam Bandt took the seat of Melbourne from the ALP.
A fourth independent is also in play with former intelligence analyst Andrew Wilkie a chance to take the Tasmanian seat of Denison.

A coalition with the Greens, what's the worst that can happen?
