WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
"We won't know who has won tonight. At this stage the modelling projection, the modelling we're doing has the government on 75 seats, which isn't a majority. They may or may not get it. At the moment on the numbers I'm seeing, it's not clear."
- ABC expert Antony Green.
"At the moment, only one party is in a position to form a majority."
- Treasurer Scott Morrison.
