What happens if the Liberals lose Wentworth in Saturday's by-election

A hung parliament occurs when no party holds the 76 seats required to form a majority government. "So I would encourage people to think about that carefully".

But independent candidate Kerryn Phelps has emerged as the most likely threat.

Wentworth was Mr Turnbull's seat.

Michelle Grattan, a political commentator, said a Liberal loss would be a "devastating blow for the Prime Minister".

Mr Morrison said he understood voters could be angered and outraged by Mr Turnbull's axing as Prime Minister in August but warned there would be "unnecessary uncertainty" if Mr Sharma loses to Dr Phelps.

A ReachTel poll published on Wednesday showed that Sharma's primary vote was falling with three days to go before polling on Saturday and that the Liberals were in danger of losing the traditionally ultra-safe seat in Sydney's affluent eastern suburbs.

Labor leader Bill Shorten has not visited Wentworth once during the campaign.
