Labor wins Victoria with pledge on education

Victoria’s new Labor premier Daniel Andrews says education at all levels will be a top priority for his government.

“I want us to be the education state,” he told a cheering crowd during his state election victory speech on 29 November in Melbourne.

Despite media predictions that the election result would be tight, Labor swept the Coalition from office with an early and emphatic victory, and a projected majority of 48 seats in Victoria’s 88-seat lower house. Coalition leader Denis Napthine conceded defeat shortly before 10pm. It is the first time in 60 years that a Victorian government has lost office after only one term.
