Created in 2001; swing above is from notional '98 result.

Now looks certain that the Northern Territory will retain two seats at next election, because, according to Malcolm Mackerras, "the Liberal Party has found a contrivance whereby the second NT seat can be saved".

They may live to regret it, because if the election is at all competitive Labor is likely to win this one.

Other NT seat is Lingiari. Before 2001 election the one seat was called Northern Territory.
