ELECTION: Neaton won’t stay quiet if she wins Capricornia

SHE might not have been in politics for too long, but Leisa Neaton has had almost everything thrown at her.

The Labor candidate for Capricornia has gone through one of the longest election campaigns in history, only to find herself in one of the five seats which could decide the fate of the nation.

Although Labor leader Bill Shorten yesterday conceded defeat, Capricornia will be one of the deciding seats if the Coalition is to form a workable majority government.

Ms Neaton trailed the LNP's Michelle Landry by 148 votes on Saturday, but she doesn't expect a clear outcome before the end of the week.

"I always thought it was going to be close because it was a marginal seat," she said.

While the outcome still remains unclear, Ms Neaton said she couldn't make long-term decisions about her future, especially when another election was not impossible.

"I'm just trying to take every day as it comes and enjoy the moment as much as possible," she said.

If she does clinch victory though, Ms Neaton said she would certainly not be staying quiet.

"If I was elected and a Coalition government was in play, I would be making sure every single one of those election commitments was met," she said.
