UPDATE: Clive Palmer has officially won by 36 votes; the AEC will now conduct a recount. Fairfax is the last seat to be decided of the Federal Election.
Affluent, vocal dude who we don’t even know how to accurately describe anymore Clive Palmer is set to face a crippling vote recount, as the contested seat of Farifax has Palmer ahead of LNP contender Ted O’Brien by a mere 22 votes.
I’ll formally request a recount in the seat of Fairfax due to evidence of tampering of the ballots and discrepancies with the count #auspol
