The Liberal Party has lost a seat that it has occupied since 1957 in a partial election.
After the recent leadership problems in the federal parliament, the political party did everything possible in an effort to win the Wagga Wagga by-elections, but it seems that the efforts were not enough.
The Daily Telegraph reported that Liberal candidate Julia Ham virtually admitted & # 39; the state seat of New South Wales.
She said she would run again for the seat in March during the state elections.
The ABC reported that the Liberal Party lost the elections, but it will take a week to meet the winner of the Labor and Independent candidates.
Nationals leader Michael McCormack showed up to hand out "how to vote" cards for candidate Julia Ham.
However, he refused to answer questions about a possible loss because of his colleagues in Canberra.
He told the publication: "We do not intend to lose the seat, we intend to win the seat, that question is hypothetical and I am getting good vibes from the voters here in the field."
Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who visited Wagga Wagga six times before, also told The Daily Telegraph: "The infighting in Canberra was a major concern and, combined with the actions of a former member, created an atmosphere where the cynicism of the People with politics were ruled out. "

Currently, Ms. Ham is in second place behind the independent candidate Joe McGirr.
Even though ABC analyst Antony Green is almost certain he has lost.
He said: "At the moment it seems that of the three candidates in this contest, the Liberals are currently the least likely to win."
Dr. McGirr said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald: "It's clearly very close and everything will be reduced to preferences.
"Being at this point of the primary vote really is really a wonderful surprise."
The first preference vote for the party seems to have been cut in half and more than 30 percent away from the government.
If the Liberals lose their seats, they are expected to blame the federal party, which suffered a vertiginous spill during the run-up to the by-elections.

The spill saw Malcolm Turnbull overthrown as prime minister and replaced by Scott Morrison.
A Newspoll published after Mr. Morrison took over the lead position showed that Bill Shorten is currently the preferred Prime Minister, from 33 to 39 percent.
The Labor Party is also currently the preferred party by a considerable margin, from 41 to 33 percent.
The loss of banking means that when the state elections are held in 2019, the Liberal Party is in an even more precarious position.
It has counted more than 80 percent of the vote of first preference.
