UPDATED 10:50PM:

LABOR has won the Queensland election, holding 47 seats, with the LNP 33, six are in doubt and seven are held by minor parties.

In Redlands Capalaba MP Don Brown has beaten the LNP's Bev Walters.

The seat of Redlands - a key battleground - has been held by Kim Richards who will defeat the LNP's Henry Pike.

The LNP's Mark Robinson has won Oodgeroo against the ALP's Irene Henley and a challenge from Independent Claire Richardson.

In the Scenic Rim, the LNP's Jon Krause has easily held the seat while in Logan Linus Power has retained the seat for Labor.

Labor's Charis Mullen has held Jordan while Mick de Brenni has won Springwood.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk was gracious about Opposition leader Deb Frecklington saying she had fought a good campaign.

Oddly, Ms Frecklington chose to make a concession speech at the same time as Ms Palaszczuk's victory speech, saying that she would be leading the party for the next four years.

Mick de Brenni has held the seat of Springwood. He celebrated with his wife Kristie and supporters at Springwood Park Football Club.

UPDATED 9.10PM:

LABOR has 47 seats, the LNP 33 and nine are in doubt, putting the ALP in a strong position to retain power.

It will be a great victory for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk who has been under great pressure over tough COVID-19 restrictions.

It means she will have won three elections in a row, elevating her to the ranks of major Labor Party figures.

She initially was dubbed the accidental premier after winning power from the Newman government in 2015.

It had imploded after just one term, with a string of far right policies like a plan to put jailed bikies in pink jump suits and allowing cattle grazing in some national parks.

KAP has three seats and the Greens two, with former deputy premier Jackie Trad having lost her seat in South Brisbane.
