THE Liberal National stronghold on Warrego is set to continue for four years in stark contrast to the rest of Queensland, which experienced a huge swing to Labor in last night's election.

Annastacia Palaszczuk was re-elected as Queensland's premier, being the first woman in our state's history to be reinstated for a third term.

As of 10am this morning, Labor currently hold 48 seats, and will maintain a majority government moving forward.

The LNP were only able to secure 34 seats, while the remainder were shared between Katter's Australian Party, the Greens, One Nation, and an independent.

Opposition leader Deb Frecklington retained her seat in Nanango, however her party lost in crucial areas across the state, with political analysts contributing it to Ms Palaszczuk's hard stance on borders, and the collapse of One Nation across Queensland.

The state electorate of Warrego for the LNP was one of the only saving graces for the opposition, with incumbent MP Ann Leahy securing 54.41 per cent of the vote as of 10am morning.

Labor candidate Mark O'Brien trailed behind at only 20.85 per cent of the vote, followed by KAP candidate Rick Gurnett on 11.43 per cent.

One Nation candidate Joshua Coyne secured 8.91 per cent of votes, followed by Greens candidate Joshua Sanderson on 2.30 per cent, with independent candidate Mark Stone coming last on 2.11 per cent.

Speaking at Roma's Club Hotel last night following her victory, Ms Leahy said she was humbled to be returned for a third term.

"I'm looking to see what happens with a lot of my colleagues," she said.

"My volunteers worked extremely hard, so, I owe a lot to them for their very hard work."

Ms Leahy's plan after last night was for her and the party to regroup and discuss the outcome of their seats.

"Our job is to work very hard," she said.

"Our job is to win elections."

More than 97 per cent of formal votes have been counted in Warrego, with the process expected to go on for a few more days.
