ALP loses another two seats

1:16 pm on 13 September 2013

The Australian Labor party has conceded defeat in another two seats in the lower house of parliament as its casualty list from last Saturday's election nears 20.

Labor acknowledged on Friday that it could not peg back coalition leads in Eden-Monaro (NSW) and Capricornia (Queensland).

The party is also facing defeat in McEwen (Victora) and possibly Parramatta (NSW).

AAP reports the Coalition is on track to win 93 seats in the House of Representatives to Labor's 53.
