The order of election method would favour the Coalition. ORDER OF ELECTION (states)NSW: 3 Coalition 3 ALP, 2 Coalition, 1 ALP, 1 Grn, 1 ON, 1 LDP.VIC: 3 Coalition, 2 ALP, 1 Grn, 2 Coalition, 2 ALP, 1 Grn, 1 Hinch.QLD: 3 Coalition, 2 ALP, 1 ON, 2 Coalition, 2 ALP, 1 Grn, 1 ON.WA: 3 Coalition, 2 ALP, 1 Grn, 2 Coalition, 2 ALP, 1 Grn, 1 ON.SA: 2 Coalition, 2 ALP, 2 NXT, 2 Coalition, 1 ALP, 1 NXT, 1 Grn, 1 FFP.TAS: 2 Coalition, 2 ALP, 1 Grn, 1 Lambie, 2 Coalition, 3 ALP, 1 Grn.TOTALS: 16 Coalition, 13 ALP, 3 Grn, 2 NXT, 1 ON, 1 Lambie, 12 Coalition, 11 ALP, 6 Grn, 3 ON, 1 LDP, 1 Hinch, 1 FFP, 1 NXT.This split would strongly favour the Coalition 1612, the ALP slightly 1311 and heavily disadvantage the Greens 36. Sum of these differences is 9. The s282 method would give Hinch and a NSW Green 6year terms instead of a Victorian Liberal and NSW Labor candidate. This would give much fairer splits of 1513 for the Coalition, 1212 for ALP and 45 Greens. Sum of differences is 3  clearly the s282 method is MUCH fairer. longweekend58 wrote on Aug 6 ^{th}, 2016 at 11:40am: We get rid of Hinch and at least one hanson senator quickly. That cant be bad. Hinch was elected 10th, so under the order of election mwthod he would get a 3year term. Hinch would get a 6year term under the recount method. The same for the One Nation candidates  I think three of them would end up with 3year terms under both methods. Hanson herself may get a 6year term under both methods.
