The Australian Labor Party has claimed the 77th seat in the House of Representatives with the re-election of Fiona in the seat of Gilmore. What that means is that the Coalition has failed to take a single seat from Labor at the just concluded election. And it confirms indeed that Labor will be a majority Government when Parliament resumes in July.

Today, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese announced his Government’s first full Ministry. The new ministry also has a historic number of women—10 out of 22 in cabinet and 13 out of 29 in total.
