Labor's Morwell man concedes defeat in election

Labor candidate for Morwell in the state election, Mark Richards, has conceded defeat on Twitter.

The VEC hasn't officially declared a result yet but Mr Richards concedes that independent sitting member Russell Northe has survived for a fourth term.

In his tweet Mr Richards said it's been a long campaign, thanking local ALP volunteers and Premier Daniel Andrews.

VEC counting currently has Mr Northe ahead on preferences despite Mr Richards having a higher first preference vote.
