The Labor party has secured a third term in government with Premier Daniel Andrews declaring victory for the politcal party saying, “hope always defeats hate”.

The ABC predicted a Labor victory in at least 50 seats by early Sunday morning, with a net loss for the Liberals.

Shortly after Opposition Leader Matthew Guy admitted defeat, Mr. Andrews arrived at Labor HQ to joyful celebrations.

Mr Andrews returned to some of the key policy platforms of the campaign, declaring his government had put forward a “positive and optimistic plan” including free kinder, free TAFE courses, recruitment of healthcare workers and reinstatement of the State Electricity Commission.
