One win apiece for the major parties in Logan's 2 Federal seats.

Voters in Logan’s two Federal seats have returned their two sitting M.P's.

In a “surprise” win in Forde, the L.N.P’s Bert Van Manen (pictured right) was returned and Labor’s Jim Chalmers (pictured left) was re-instated in Rankin.

Mr.Van Manen held his seat with a 7.8% margin, fending off Labor’s Des Hardman...while Mr.Chalmers held his seat, but his huge 11% margin was reduced to 7.64%.

Shaking off the slim margin of 0.63% from the 2016 election, now means the seat of Forde is no longer considered marginal...according to The Courier Mail.
