Wentworth byelection: Kerryn Phelps kicks Liberals into minority government

Independent Kerryn Phelps has ended the Liberal Party’s dominance in the blue-ribbon Sydney seat of Wentworth, plunging Prime Minister Scott Morrison into minority government.

The swing against government was so significant, at least 20 per cent, that within 90 minutes of polls closing it was clear that Liberal candidate Dave Sharma could not win the seat.
