Liberals claim Bass

Tasmania's swinging voters in Bass have proven true to form, officially swapping parties again by electing the Liberals Bridget Archer.

Typical Labor strongholds in Launceston's northern and eastern suburbs turned on the party and incumbent Ross Hart.

Bass being declared now pushes the Coalition to 77 seats.

The Electoral Commission still has two seats remaining on a knife-edge, Macquarie in New South Wales and Lilley in Queensland.
