West Australians could find out within days when they’ll head back to the polls as senior Liberals meet to discuss the timing of a Senate election re-run.

The High Court, sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns, last week ordered a fresh Senate election be held for WA as a result of 1370 ballots going missing between an initial count and a re-count of votes in the September federal election.

The new election has yet to be set although AAP understands April 5 is firming as likely.

It is expected to be on the agenda of a strategy meeting involving Prime Minister Tony Abbott, deputy leader Julie Bishop, Liberals federal director Brian Loughnane and WA coalition members on Monday morning in Canberra.
