Green Party candidate Chloe Swarbrick looks nearly certain to be going to Parliament.

It's a bittersweet result for the Green Party, however, with a number of established MPs leaving parliament with the drop in party vote share to 5.9%, down from 10.7% at the 2014 election, including Mojo Mathers, Denise Roche, and Barry Coates.

Chloe Swarbrick is primed to become the youngest MP to enter Parliament in 42 years, since Marilyn Waring was elected in 1975. The Electoral Commission listed her as a successful candidate. The Greens are poised to have at least seven MPs, with Swarbrick at number seven on the party's list.

"I would say it's supposed to be a House of Representatives". She went on to have a nine-year career in parliament.

"I wouldn't say he's super representative of the youth of today".

"I'm hoping that what we see from the special votes is you know, we've got from what I've heard about 200,000 that are yet to be calculated from the advance voting period which are people that enrolled and voted at the same time over the past two weeks".

The Green Party was also looking forward to a boost from overseas votes, she said.

Ms Swarbrick said it had been a very tumultuous campaign for all parties, with three different leaders from three political parties resigning.

Shortly after, she announced her intentions to run for the Green Party.
