Former NSW Premier Kristina Keneally has seen a substantial swing against her in the seat of Fowler.
Keneally was parachuted into the western Sydney seat at the consternation of many locals.
In the early count, she has suffered a 17 per cent swing against her.
Former Liberal candidate Dai Le, who is running as an independent, has picked up 28 per cent of the vote.
Liberal Courtney Nguyen is at 16 per cent, but most of her votes are expected to flow to Le.
With only 36.6 per cent of the primary vote, Keneally will be dependent on a favourable flow of preferences, including from the United Australia Party and One Nation.
But only 10 per cent of the votes have been counted.
“These are early votes,” Bill Shorten said.
Fowler is regarded as a safe Labor seat.
Keneally parachuting in the seat ruffled feathers locally, who were hoping for an Asian-Australian candidate in the heavily non-white seat.
