He’s back: John Alexander defeats Kristina Keneally in Bennelong by-election

Labor candidate Kristina Keneally has conceded defeat in the Bennelong by-election

The former NSW Premier has lost the Federal seat to Liberal John Alexander, who was forced into the by-election after being caught-up in the dual citizenship fiasco.

Indications are that he has suffered a swing of about 5 per cent, but no where near enough to lose his seat.

Ms Keneally has told Labor Party faithful that despite the loss, there are still some positives from the result.

“It looks like we’ve had a swing of five to six per cent,” she told a cheering crowd. “And that is in a safe Liberal seat.”
