The Liberals as of last night were likely to get an extra seat in the Senate through the election of former Young Liberal president Claire Chandler and re-election of Richard Colbeck.
The Nationals, however, failed dismally in the count on Saturday night on a ticket led by sitting senator Steve Martin, only winning 2348 primary votes - or just over 1 per cent of all votes counted.
With just over half of the Senate ballots counted, the Greens achieved close to a progressive quota which should see Nick McKim returned.
Labor senators Carol Brown and Catryna Bilyk will certainly be returned, and Jacqui Lambie is likely to be returned although her numbers so far fall well short of a quota.
It is likely she will benefit from the flow of preferences from minor parties candidates and leakages from the major parties.
Ms Lambie was ousted from her seat in 2017 after being found to be a dual citizen by descent.
Mr Martin ran second on her party ticket in the 2016 election and was awarded the seat.
He was expelled from the party by Ms Lambie for failing to step aside to allow her to return to the Senate - a move which sparked a bitter feud between the two.
Labor sitting senator Lisa Singh will almost certainly not make the cut after being pushed into an unwinnable fourth position on the party's Senate ticket.
Ms Singh faced this fate in 2016 during the double dissolution election but managed to win enough below-the-line votes to return to the chamber.
This time she will need to double the fete.
Despite a high-profile campaign, independent Steve Mav failed to make much of an impact as did minority parties like the United Australia Party and One Nation.
Mr Mav won 2054 first-preference votes, the UAP 5343 votes, and One Nation scored 7349 votes.
Anti-salmon farm candidates Craig Garland and Mark Duncan also failed to make much of an impact despite their perceived popularity on the North-West, winning 2195 votes between them. Counting is set to resume on Sunday.
