Queensland election: Labor to form government as LNP concedes defeat

Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls speaks with LNP elected members Trevor Watts member for Toowoomba North and David Janetzki for Toowoomba South as they go for a walk in the park in Toowoomba Wednesday

However, after the electoral commission declared results in dozens of seats on Thursday, a clearer picture has emerged of the likely makeup of the new 93-seat parliament.

EARLIER @ December 6, 8.20am: It looks like Labor has claimed the 47th seat it needs to form a majority government.

The LNP is sitting on 39 seats, according to the ABC's election computer.

Nearly two weeks after the Queensland election, LNP leader Tim Nicholls has conceded defeat to Labor.

Labor’s Annastacia Palaszczuk leaving 1 George St yesterday

That could all change today as the official declaration of seats confirms it is impossible for him to govern, even with an assortment of Greens, Independent, and Katter MPs.

It's been almost a fortnight since the November 25 election day, but with the vote count extremely close the LNP has been waiting on results in a handful of marginal electorates.

This time it will be a majority, albeit slim, something Ms Palaszczuk insisted throughout that campaign was the only result she would accept.
