Despite Ms Kealy easily holding the seat of Lowan, the Labor Party won the election in a landslide.

Across Victoria Labor won 59 seats, the Liberal Nationals 20 seats, the Greens and Independents both secured one seat each and seven seats are still in doubt.

Pre-polling and early votes still need to be counted across the state.

More to come.
