Counting continuing in the Victorian Upper House

Counting is continuing in the Victorian Upper house. In Northern Metro below-the-line votes have helped the Greens overtake Stephen Mayne which means he doesn't get their preferences and is knocked out before leapfrogging other micros. The end result is 2 ALP, 2 LIB, 1 GRN instead of 2 ALP, 1 LIB, 1 GRN and Mayne.

Early counting showed Country Alliance getting a seat in Northern Victoria but this looks unlikely now. Nth Vic should go 2 LIB, 2 ALP 1 NAT

The most interesting contest is West Metro which earlier showed 3 ALP, 2 LIB with around 83% counted, now the count is 91% and The Greens have jumped into the 4th place to leave it looking like 2 ALP, 2 LIB and 1 GRN.

If these results stay as are overall it will be 21 LIB/NAT, 16 ALP and 3 GRN.
