QUEENSLAND ELECTION: Labor wins likely majority

BREAKING Queensland's Government Is Finally Confirmed

#QLDVotes Labor claims its 48th seat, however LNP is yet to concede

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

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says she now has a clear mandate to pursue her jobs and economic programs, after claiming majority government a fortnight after the state election.

On Tuesday night, Labor tweeted Meaghan Scanlon had won the Gold Coast seat of Gaven, defeating LNP's Sid Cramp.

"My focus is on making the lives of Queenslanders better, not making records", Ms Palaszczuk said.

The first order of business will be establishing her new cabinet, with Curtis Pitt expected to be removed as Treasurer in favour of another senior minister, possibly Deputy Premier Jackie Trad.

The LNP hung on to 39, Katter's Australian Party picked up three, the Greens and One Nation one each, and independent Sandy Bolton won Noosa.

Despite a slim Labor majority being predicted since the day after the poll, LNP leader Tim Nicholls has refused to concede defeat. "I will not be seeking to continue as Leader of the LNP", he said in a statement.

"I've stared down Campbell Newman, I've stared down Lawrence Springborg, I've stared down Tim Nicholls". Labor is expected to reach 48 when the final six seats are declared.
