Territory Alliance leader Terry Mills loses seat of Blain in NT election

Territory Alliance leader and long-serving MLA Terry Mills has lost the seat of Blain in one of the first significant upsets of the Northern Territory election.

With more than 40 per cent of the vote counted, the ABC’s election computer predicts Blain will be a narrow contest between the Country Liberal Party’s Matthew Kerle and Labor’s Mark Turner.

Mr Mills’s first preference vote is currently hovering behind both candidates at about 23 per cent.

ABC election analyst Antony Green said it would be impossible for Mr Mills to climb back from that position.

More to come.
