MP Jodie Harrison said she was "absolutely honoured and thankful" to be reelected in the electorate of Charlestown, and there was "still a lot more to be done".
"The issues that kept coming up during the campaign are privatisation of the buses, lack of a good transport service, people not being able to see doctors in the public health system when they need to, mental health services and housing services," Ms Harrison said.
"These are the issues that keep coming back to me through constituents that need fixing, and I will continue to fight.
"I'd like to keep engaging with community groups and individuals as I have been for the past four years," she said.
Ms Harrison was comfortably reelected to the seat of Charlestown, however, with a slightly reduced margin. This was a similar situation for incumbent Labor MPs in Swansea, Maitland and Cessnock.
