Tanya Plibersek has become the latest Labor minister to concede the party will lose tonight’s election.
“It’s just a matter of the size of the [Coalition] victory,” Plibersek said on ABC News 24.
Earlier this evening former defence minister Steven Smith said it was simply a matter of holding onto as many seats as possible.
Plibersek, the member for Sydney, is the federal health minister.
Exit polls show Labor is set for a landslide defeat, and could lose more than 20 seats to give the LNP a comfortable majority.
