Hartsuyker and Hogan sworn in

THE 2013 Federal Election finally wraps up in Page today with the official confirmation of the Nationals' Kevin Hogan as the member for the next three years.

Mr Hogan will be confirmed as the seat's new federal member at noon in the Australian Electoral Commission office in Grafton.

At his second attempt Mr Hogan defeated the ALP's Janelle Saffin 45,154 to 40,787 on a two-party preferred basis, securing a swing of 6.73% to the Coalition.

Yesterday Nationals MP Luke Hartsuyker received his official confirmation as the winner in Cowper.

The declaration of the poll showed Mr Hartsuyker had beaten his Country Labor opponent Alfredo Navarro 53,306 to 33,079, two-party preferred, increasing his margin by 2.44%.

Tomorrow The Daily Examiner will look at how the voting went booth by booth in the seat of Page.

On Friday there will be a similar breakdown of the Cowper voting.
