Australian Election News

(Victoria, Australia) National elections are taking place down under this weekend.
While the votes in the Australian election are still coming in, it looks early enough to say that conservative Tony Abbott has trounced liberal Kevin Rudd — and that Julian Assange's specially formed Wikileaks Party may not have done very well at all.

Assange himself was on the ticket for a Senate seat in Victoria. However, the results coming in so far suggest that the Wikileaks Party has little more than 1% of the vote counted so far — trailing behind the "Australian Sex Party."
Everyone awaits the final tabulation. Notably, Assange remains cooped up in a renovated female bathroom in the Ecuadoran Embassy in London, presumably waiting for better news.
