Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the result was still “very uncertain”.
The result will depend on the outcome of the postal survey, which Mr Turnbull said was “very important”.
“We are very confident that we’re going to get the result of the survey,” he said.
Mr Turnbull said he had spoken to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) about the outcome, and had agreed with the result.
“The AEC is confident that the result is correct and that it is what the Australian people want,” he told reporters in Melbourne.
The outcome of a postal survey was expected to be released shortly. AAP/ABC
