The Rev Fred Nile, Leader of the Christian Democratic Party, was declared re-elected today to the NSW Upper House by the NSW Electoral Commissioner, Mr Colin Barry.
Please refer to the attached list of the elected 21 members, which will be added to the current 21 Members, making a total of 42 Members.
The overall composition of the Upper House will be Coalition (LIB/NP) 20; ALP 12; Greens 5; Christian Democratic Party 2; Shooters and Fishers Party 2 and the new Animal Justice Party 1; which will probably align with the Greens 5 Members to give them 6 votes.
