ALL eyes were on western Sydney this election with predictions pegged against Labor.
But both Fowler MP Chris Hayes and Werriwa MP Laurie Ferguson kept their seats despite the ALP losing support.
Mr Hayes had a comfortable win, adding a further 9.5 per cent swing in his favour to his 8.8 per cent safe Labor seat.
"At 18.3 per cent I now have the largest swing for Labor in the country," he said. "I'm certainly very humbled by the result.
"I've worked very hard for this electorate for a long time so I'd like to think my win has something to do with that."
Werriwa was earmarked as the biggest game-changer in Labor heartland with 10 candidates vying for the seat.
Despite the best efforts of Liberal candidate Kent Johns, Mr Ferguson came out the victor.
But the election was close and the Liberal Party scored a 4 per cent swing in their favour.
Mr Ferguson managed to secure around 52.8 per cent of votes, while Mr Johns followed closely at 47.2 per cent.
"I always said it was going to be very close," Mr Ferguson said. "I think I've come through because of my strong connections with ethnic groups in this electorate.
"Unfortunately, Labor faced a very bad climate with leadership issues and the issues of corruption, but hopefully these are not permanent fixtures that will affect the political landscape.
"All we can do is rebuild so the Labor Party is strong enough to represent the Australian people at the next election."
Mr Ferguson said he would not put up his hand for the leadership but he would support Bill Shorten or Tanya Plibersek if they took up candidacy.
Hughes MP Craig Kelly also kept his seat for the Liberal Party with a 6 per cent swing.
He said at the end of the day he was still going to do his best to represent his constituents because that was his job.
"We have a big job ahead of us trying to repay some of the $300 billion in debt Labor left us with," he said.
"In addition, my government will review the proposed Moorebank Intermodal and assess where the project is up to.
"We will assess how much money has been spent and I'm confident once the facts are in we can have some real discussion about this project.
"The intermodal is not good for the area, it's not good for the community and it's not good for Sydney.
"As long as there's breath left in me I'll oppose it."
