Those estimates, if counted votes had run to the same course, would have delivered Bill Shorten as many as 80 seats in the House of Representatives and a large majority in the parliament.

Despite that, the Opposition leader called Prime Minister Scott Morrison tonight after 11pm to concede the Federal election following a late surge from the Coalition in the polls.

Adding to that, as many as seven electorates around the country where the ALP are ahead of the Coalition are still in doubt - meaning Shorten's loss could still be worse.
