The latest results from the State election have been declared, with some belated good news for decimated WA Labor.
After a marathon scrutineering session by the WA Electoral Commission on Saturday, a week after the polls closed, Labor candidates were declared narrow winners in three knife-edge seats - Collie-Preston, Kimberley and Midland.
In Collie-Preston, Labor member Mick Murray officially retained his seat by just 59 votes.
In Kimberley, despite a strong showing by the Greens, Labor candidate Josie Farrer came out on top by 1154 votes.
And in Midland, Labor powerbroker Michelle Roberts officially held onto her seat by the slimmest of margins - just 23 votes.
In Eyre, Liberal Graham Jacobs retained the seat by 125 votes.
Recounts can be offered to any candidate who loses by 100 votes or less.
Premier Colin Barnett said on Friday he intended to decided on his new cabinet at a party meeting on Tuesday, with ministers to be sworn later in the week.
More than 100 WAEC staff and scores of party scrutineers oversaw the counting and distribution of voting preferences across a dozen districts.
The commission will continue finalising formal counts in more than a dozen remaining seats on Sunday, with the rest to follow during the week.
Meanwhile, 150 WAEC staff will continue working at the count centre over the weekend to finalise the Legislative Council tally.
Details of more than 1.2 million Upper House votes will be entered into the special count WA computer system.Results in the Mining and Pastoral and Agricultural regions should be calculated by Tuesday, with winners in the remaining four regions expected to be announced by Wednesday.
