Long-serving Labor MP Warren Snowdon has claimed victory in the Northern Territory seat of Lingiari.
With more than 66 per cent of votes counted by Monday morning, the swing towards Country Liberal Party candidate Jacinta Price was only 1.4 per cent and Mr Snowdon felt secure with a margin of nearly 6.9 per cent.
One of Australia's longest-serving MPs, the 69-year-old former Rudd minister was first elected in 1987 and served until 1996. He was elected again in 1998 and has served ever since.
