Australians Greens Leader Christine Milne has congratulated her colleague Senator Scott Ludlam with the news the recount will see him returned as a Greens Senator and as a tremendous representative for Western Australia.
"This is a terrific day for Scott Ludlam and the Greens," Senator Milne said.
"I want to thank all the scrutineers, Greens members and supporters around the country who have been so supportive of Scott and put in a fantastic effort.
"It's clear the recount was justified. But the saga is not over yet.
"There are questions that the AEC will need to respond to.
"This whole saga highlights the need for electoral reform.
"This has been a difficult time for all the candidates in Western Australia. We now have to work to guarantee that voter's confidence in our electoral system is assured."
