Result. Shane Broad, of the Australian Labor Party, has been elected as Member of the House of Assembly for the division of Braddon until the next general election.

They were Benji Benjamin, Darryl Bessell, Brenton Best, Philip Nicholas, Paul O’Halloran and Dr Broad, who is an agricultural scientist and current lecturer at University of Tasmania.
More than 12,000 ballot papers were distributed to complete the recount.
