There are some new faces in the north-east Tasmanian electorate of Bass but the distribution of seats looks likely to be unchanged.
So far two Labor members, two Liberal and one Green have been elected.
Former federal Liberal MP Michael Ferguson topped the polls in Bass with more than 14,000 votes.
“I’m reflecting what people have said to me are their priroties, plus I’m coming from a family background,” he said.
Sitting Liberal Member Peter Gutwein and the Parks and Tourism Minister Michelle O’Byrne will return to Parliament.
In 2006 the Greens’ member Kim Booth was elected on preferences.
This time he won a quota on his own, which he attributes to the escalation of the pulp mill debate.
“Bass has said no to Gunns pulp mill,” he said.
The fifth member for Bass looks likely to be Labor candidate and former school prinicpal Brian Wightman.
