Fielding officially loses senate seat

YES! He’s gone. (Arm punches air in victory).

Dumped senator Steve Fielding has vowed to continue to make his presence felt in the nine months he has left in federal parliament.After clinging on to a faint hope he might retain his seat, the Family First leader finally conceded defeat when votes below the line were counted yesterday, nearly four weeks after the August 21 election.The DLP has returned to Canberra for the first time in 36 years with Ballarat blacksmith John Madigan claiming the sixth Victorian seat, pushing Senator Fielding out after one term.
