Ms Palaszczuk said she'd wished outgoing LNP leader Tim Nicholls well after he conceded defeat, but she had a stark warning about the merged party's prospects if it doesn't elect LNP Deputy Leader Deb Frecklington as its new chief.

"Thrilled to have the seat of Burdekin declared by the ECQ this morning, time to roll up the sleeves and get back in the saddle", Mr Last tweeted on Thursday.

The electoral commission has declared the results in 84 of the state's 93 seats, including some of the closest races in electorates like Maiwar and Townsville.

Man trapped by legs in oil tank
Ten ambulances responded to the scene, along with Police and Fire and Rescue trucks. "We did absolutely everything we could". According to a report by The Sun UK, a man has died after being trapped for hours in a hot ink tank at a factory in Sydney .

According to the ABC, Labor MP Scott Stewart has won the seat of Townsville, giving Premier Annastacia Palaszcuk enough numbers to form a majority.

Deputy Premier Jackie Trad is tipped to replace Curtis Pitt as Treasurer in a Cabinet reshuffle.

It's not known whether Mr Nicholls will resign from parliament, although in the statement he thanked the people of his electorate of Clayfield "for re-electing me for my fifth term".

Kevin Spacey accused of 'groping' former Norwegian Royal
Rather than deny the incident, which was alleged to have been in 1986, Spacey said while he didn't remember, he apologised anyway. Behn separated from Princess Martha Louise , the only daughter of King Harald V, last year (16) after 14 years of marriage.

Mr Nicholls took to Twitter to announce both his concession and that he will "not seek to continue as LNP leader".

MPs have so far held two teleconferences ahead of Tuesday's party room meeting, but are yet to hold any official leadership discussions.

The win makes Ms Palaszczuk one of the most successful female leaders in Australian political history, having taken her party from the 2012 wipe-out at the hands of Campbell Newman to minority government in 2015 and now majority government.

International Monetary Fund identifies financial risks in China
But it said it did not go along with all of the findings and that the stress tests "do not fully reflect the whole picture". Increasing capital would enhance the resilience and credibility of the financial system, as well as reassure markets.

Several others change are expected. It is expected to declare the remaining seats, including Mundingburra and Thuringowa, today.
