Labor has claimed the 47th seat it needs to form a majority government in Queensland

The party on Tuesday night tweeted that Meaghan Scanlon had snatched the Gold Coast seat of Gaven from sitting Liberal National Party member Sid Cramp.

However, Labor has yet to claim victory overall and LNP leader Tim Nicholls has not conceded defeat, meaning both sides may wait until the Electoral Commission of Queensland formally declares a result.
