Julie Owens has claimed victory in the seat of Parramatta.
The Sun can confirm Liberal candidate Martin Zaiter has just now conceded the seat.
"I'm incredibly pleased," Ms Owens said.
"There's a lot of work to do in Parramatta and I'm looking forward to getting on with it.
"Let's see what this term brings really."
Earlier today the Sun reported that Labor incumbent Julie Owens continued to be ahead of Liberal candidate Martin Zaiter in the race for the seat of Parramatta.
She said she wasn't surprised Mr Zaiter had chosen to concede the seat.
"I'm 850 ahead with about 3000 to count," she said.
"He'd have to beat me by about 33 per cent at this stage, so it's still possible but it's so unlikely at this point I think we can all stop watching.
"Mind you I'll keep watching."
With 88.41 per cent of the vote counted, Ms Owens had 39,264 of the two-party preferred votes at 2pm.
Mr Zaiter was nipping at her heels with 38,574.
‘‘There’s still 7000 votes outstanding, so they won’t call it until there’s a clear majority,’’ an Australian Electoral Commission spokesman said today at about 2pm.
‘‘That could be later in the week — or next week.’’
Parramatta is one of three NSW seats yet to close. The others are Eden-Monaro and Barton.
In Victoria, the seats of Indi and McEwen are yet to close.
On Wednesday, Ms Owens was ‘‘98 per cent’’ sure she would retain the seat having then won 50.8 per cent of votes after the distribution of preferences.
She had 50.44 per cent of the votes at 2pm.
More to come.
