While Phil Donato was swiftly declared a winner on Saturday night his campaign manager Brett Cooke faces a nervous wait to see if he will join him in parliament.

He said it might take two weeks before he knew.

If Mr Cooke is elected, giving the SFF three seats with Robert Borsak already holding a seat from the previous parliament, the SFF would likely hold the balance of power in the upper house.
