Katter gives conditional support to Turnbull

Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has secured the support of Queensland’s maverick crossbencher Bob Katter to form a coalition minority government, following a meeting in Brisbane.

The coalition has won 73 seats, and may possibly win the 76 needed for an outright majority.

Turnbull has said he is “confident” the coalition will have the numbers to form a majority government but is taking steps to gain the support of crossbenchers if the election results in a hung parliament.
