The official declarations of results in House of Representatives seats are continuing this week.
Counting is continuing in all of the AEC’s 79 count centres while scanning of Senate ballot papers continues in the eight central Senate scrutiny centres.
The AEC cannot officially declare a result until it is mathematically impossible for the margin to be overtaken.
A number of House of Representatives seats will require a full distribution of preferences before a result can be declared.
