"In North Sydney, teal Kylea Tink was set to take the seat from Trent Zimmerman with about 54% of the vote after preferences, although the incumbent was hoping postal votes could still save him. Labor’s high-profile candidate for North Sydney, Catherine Renshaw, also garnered strong support in the seat.

Tink claimed victory saying she would now be seeking her community’s support to “change the climate in Canberra”.

Tink said it was not just her victory but a win for the 1,000 volunteers who powered her campaign.

She promised to deliver “faster action on climate change, an integrity commission, an economy that is forward-focussed and action to address the systemic inequality that continues to plague our community”.

Zimmerman had not yet conceded defeat but admitted “the pathway to victory in North Sydney is a narrow one”.

Reflecting on the likely loss of several urban seats, Zimmerman said the Liberal party must ensure it represented “the aspirations of the great urban areas that represent a large portion of the economic activity of our nation”.

“There is a driving desire in the communities I represent for greater action on climate change, for greater action in areas like ensuring there are genuinely more opportunities for women in our communities,” the outgoing Liberal MP said.

Zimmerman said “we cannot ignore them, for if we do, winning government again will be impossible”.

Matt Kean, the NSW treasurer and a leading moderate, said the lesson of Saturday night was that “when the Liberal party goes too far to the right we lose in the centre”.
