Dr Joe McGirr, Wagga's new MP-Elect says he's hoping that confirmation of the final results from the by-election will come today, so he can head to Parliament tomorrow and be sworn in.

The first Independent ever elected to the seat, Dr McGirr had 59.63% of the two-party preferred vote, compared to the Liberals' Julia Ham on 40.37%.

Dr McGirr says at the top of his list of priorities, will be holding the government to the $100 million worth of promises it made in the lead up to the by-election.
