EARLIER

Bass Labor incumbent Brian Wightman's political career is hanging by a knife's edge as the final days of the preference count draws to a close.

So far, only two candidates have been officially elected - Liberals' Peter Gutwein and Michael Ferguson - although Labor's Michelle O'Byrne and Greens MHA Kim Booth look set to be officially victors for the third and fourth seats in Bass.

First-time Liberal candidate Sarah Courtney (6870) is favoured to win the fifth seat ahead of Dorset mayor and fellow Liberal candidate Barry Jarvis (5873) with some 9000 preference votes still to be excluded from Liberal candidates.

Mr Wightman  is 1500 votes behind Mr Booth and will need a strong flow of preferences from the Liberals to remain in the parliament.

In Braddon, the Liberals continue to push for four seats with Adam Brooks and Jeremy Rockliff already being elected. 

Roger Jaensch and Joan Rylah should have enough votes in hand to see off their rivals, with former deputy premier Bryan Green set to take the final seat ahead of the Greens' Paul O'Halloran.

Embattled former Labor MP Brenton Best has struggled in the polling and looks set to be unseated.

In Lyons, four candidates have already been elected - Rene Hidding, Guy Barnett and Mark Shelton for the Liberals and Rebecca White from Labor - while David Llewellyn (Labor) leads Tim Morris (Greens) by 556 votes for the final seat, with PUP's Quentin Von Stieglitz the last candidate's votes to be excluded (4135). 

In Denison, Scott Bacon (Labor), Matthew Groom (Liberal) and Cassy O'Connor (Greens) have already been elected. Liberals' Elise Archer looks set to be elected fourth, while the fifth seat is locked in a battle between Labor pair Julian Amos and Madeleine Ogilvie, with just 221 votes separating them.

In Franklin, Liberal leader and Premier-elect Will Hodgman polled two quotas in his own right to easily win the first seat, ahead of Jacquie Petrusma (Liberal), Lara Giddings (Labor) and Greens leader Nick McKim.

Paul Harriss (Liberals) is slightly favoured to pick up the fifth seat in Franklin.
