The Australian Electoral Commission has made a decision regarding the touted vote re-count for the Federal seat of Gilmore.
Australian Electoral Commission Director, Media & Digital Engagement Evan Ekin-Smyth, has confirmed that a recount will not be directed.
The request was considered carefully.
The counting process was undertaken in line with the Electoral Act and there was sufficient checking and re-checking of ballot papers during the scrutiny period (including the fresh scrutiny process).
The declaration of the poll for Gilmore is being reset with a time and location to be advised.
