Steve Cooper has claimed the Division 8 Bundaberg council by-election. Eight of the 13 booths have been counted, with Mr Cooper seeing over 49 percent of them in his favour. Next in line is David Facer with just over 35 percent. He'd conceded defeat, wishing Steve luck in representing Division 8. While John Learmonth is in the lead for Division 10 but is yet to claim the win. He's sitting almost five hundred votes in front of Tim Sayre with 39 percent of the votes. Again eight of 13 booths have been counted.
