LABOR says it has picked up a data entry error in a crucial seat in the West Australia election which now means the party can form a minority government in its own right.

Foreign Minister and senior Labor Party strategist Stephen Smith said a a re-examination of the count in one of the state's northwest seats showed it would fall to Labor.

"A close look at the figures over the weekend and people's attention being drawn to the data entry error in the northwest Cape (coast) seat, that seat in my view has clearly been won by Labor," Mr Smith said in Perth today.

"So it now opens up the technical possibility that Labor could govern in its own right with the support of two independents."
