"The Greens will win that and Jackie Trad will be defeated."

Ms MacMahon said voters had responded to the Greens' positive vision.

"This result tonight in South Brisbane — we've also seen big swings in McConnel and Cooper — this sends a message to the political establishment that the time when mining corporations are able to dictate to our political system who gets what, is completely over," she said as supporters cheered her.

"This time we're going to have Greens MPs in Parliament fighting for everyday Queenslanders.

"We'll be fighting for things like 100 per cent publicly-owned clean energy, we'll be fighting for free public transport and housing."

'A loss to the Labor Party'

Ms Trad did not invite the media to her election night event.

  9 questions about 2020’s record-breaking early vote, answered How many people have already voted? And what does that tell us about the election?The early vote in 2020 has already far surpassed the total early vote in 2016. The early vote surge indicates turnout in 2020 could be the highest in a century, at around 65 percent of the voting-eligible population, or about 150 million voters.

Before election night there was strong speculation about Labor compensating for losses in Jackie Trad most likely out of the Queensland parliament. Jackie Trad cannot win her South Brisbane seat from here. The sample is small in South Brisbane and very small in McConnel, but it suggests

South Brisbane , also known as Brisbane South , is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland. South Brisbane has generally been considered a safe seat for the Labor Party since 1915. Labor MP Jackie Trad is the current member.

On Saturday evening, she praised her supporters on social media.

"My heart is so full because of the support I've received from locals, volunteers, Labor Party members, friends and of course, my beautiful family," Ms Trad said.

"I'm so grateful to each and every person who has helped make a difference, not just to my campaign, but to our community as well.

"Together, we've achieved so much, for South Brisbane and for Queensland. Thank you," Ms Trad said

Deputy Premier Steven Miles blamed the LNP's decision to direct preferences to the Greens above Labor.

"It's obviously a sad result for Jackie, but it's a result of the LNPs decision to elect more Greens to the Parliament and they're going to have to answer for that I think," he said.

"You will need to answer for every position Amy MacMahon takes, every position Amy MacMahon takes will be because you got her elected," Mr Miles said.

The LNP's Deputy Leader Tim Mander said Labor had lost votes to the Greens.

"The voters have made their choice and as you have rightly said, the primary vote is up for the Greens, not just there but in a number of seats, at the expense of the Labor Party," he said

Labor senator for Queensland Anthony Chisholm played down speculation Ms Trad would seek a spot in the Senate.

"She is a loss to the Parliament, she is a loss to the Labor Party," he said.

"She achieved great things as the Member for South Brisbane and as deputy premier while she was there and as treasurer."

A party high-flyer

Jackie Trad had been a key figure in the Queensland Labor Party since Annastacia Palaszczuk won office in 2015.

Her links to the party have run deep — she worked as a ministerial advisor in the Beattie and Bligh governments before winning a by-election in 2012.

Her predecessor in the seat of South Brisbane, Anna Bligh, resigned after Labor's election drubbing by the LNP under Campbell Newman.

Ms Trad took on a heavy workload, at various times carrying ministerial portfolios including: Infrastructure, Planning, Transport, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, Treasury and the role of deputy premier.

It’s what Protect the Results, a coalition of more than 100 grassroots groups, is recommending, at least for now. Of the more than a dozen election-protection organizations that have popped up over the past two months, Protect the Results is probably the best-known.

But controversy raged in 2019 when the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) was asked to examine Ms Trad's purchase of an investment property in Woolloongabba, close to the Cross River Rail project which she was overseeing.

The CCC ultimately found "no evidence … that supported a reasonable suspicion of corrupt conduct".

But it also stated that "failing to declare and properly manage a conflict of interest creates a corruption risk".

The frontbencher was stripped of her Cross River Rail responsibilities.

2020 brought another watchdog probe, this time over the appointment of a school principal.

The LNP had raised concerns she improperly interfered in the selection of a principal for the new Brisbane South State Secondary College.

Ms Trad was cleared of corruption charges, but the controversy was too much in an election year and she resigned from the ministry.

A proud progressive from Labor's left faction, Jackie Trad has cited the decriminalisation of abortion and the path to treaty with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people as key achievements.

She also instigated major projects including Cross River Rail and the new high school at Dutton Park.
