Fraser Anning won't be re-elected to the Senate
Fraser Anning has failed to be re-elected to the Senate.
Mr Anning's party did manage to get at least 53,875 first preference votes in the lower house nationally but won't win a seat there either.

Meanwhile, Clive Palmer spent $80 million to help get Scott Morrison re-elected but his cash splash is unlikely to get any of his own candidates in parliament.
"The goal for the United Australia Party was to ensure the Labor government did not get into power, introducing more (than) $1 trillion of new taxes," Mr Palmer said in a statement tonight.
The Queensland mining magnate looks likely to miss out on a seat in the Senate, polling just 3.3 per cent of the primary vote nationally.
"That's one of the best things that's come out of this election tonight because you shouldn't be able to buy your way to power, particularly when you tell an enormous number of mistruths to get there day and night and every format you can possibly imagine," Nine political editor Chris Uhlmann said.

One Nation's vote picked up and Malcolm Roberts looks set to be elected to the Senate, but Pauline Hanson's party got just three per cent of the primary vote.
The Greens held onto their senators and Adam Bandt's lower house seat of Melbourne, winning 10.3 per cent of the primary vote across the country.
