LIBERAL Party candidate Steve Martin is keen to see projects promised for Indi by Prime Minister Scott Morrison delivered.
The Wodonga engineer is behind Independent Helen Haines in the count for the seat and expected to lose, but has not conceded.
Mr Martin told The Border Mail on Saturday night it could be up to two weeks before a final result.
However, Mr Morrison's government being returned means $100 million in Coalition commitments to Indi can be fulfilled.
They include a $64 million overpass to the Hume Freeway in west Wodonga, $10 million for the Baranduda Fields sporting hub and $4 million for a study hub at Wangaratta.
"Scott Morrison is a fantastic campaigner and a prime minister who has got his absolute focus on the things impacting everyday Australians," Mr Martin said.
"It's great news for the people of Indi (he's returned) and I look forward to seeing a fantastic range of projects delivered that I have advocated for, for the community."
Dr Haines said on Sunday she trusted Mr Morrison would honour his promises to Indi even though the Liberal Party appeared to have failed to reclaim the seat it held from 1977 to 2013.
"I trust and respect the word of the Prime Minister, when he says that he is a man of honour and a man who keeps his promises and that was very clear in all of the material," Dr Haines said.
"We've all had plenty of material from the Liberal Party in particular in these last weeks of the election, it's there in black and white it's very, very clear that the Coalition promised to the people of Indi that if elected they would deliver on the projects that they announced.
"That's what they have to do and that's what I will be...ensuring they do."
Mr Martin declined to comment on why his campaign seemed to have failed, saying "I think I'll wait for the autopsy until after the result".
For former Wodonga mayor and Nationals candidate Mark Byatt the result was awful with the party suffering a 7.91 per cent swing against it.
He said he was "very disappointed" but did not rule out standing again for the Nationals.
Across all the Wodonga booths, Mr Byatt was outpolled by fellow former councillor and Labor candidate Eric Kerr with margins from 21 votes at St Augustine's school to 182 at Wodonga Senior Secondary College.
Overall, Mr Martin won 44 booths, Dr Haines 24, Mr Byatt three (Corryong, Cudgewa and Goorambat) and Mr Kerr one (Kinglake West).
At two booths, Strathbogie and Tolmie, Mr Martin and Dr Haines were even.
Dr Haines swept Wangaratta booths, while Mr Martin did the same in Wodonga centres.
