Ley wins Farrer
Liberal candidate Sussan Ley has been re-elected to represent the seat of Farrer. Despite a strong challenge from Independent candidate Kevin Mack, Ms Ley has been able to retain her leadership position.
Considered a ‘very safe’ Liberal seat, Ms Ley has held the position since 2001. She first won the seat with a majority of just 0.1 percent over the National Party, but with 16.4 percent over Labor. With no National Party challenger in subsequent elections, Ley has had little difficulty winning re-election since.
In an interview with Ace Radio prior to the election, Ms Ley outlined the key policies of the Liberal Party.
She said a re-elected Scott Morrison government will:
- keep your taxes lower;
- support small business;
- stand behind our farmers; and,
- bring jobs, particularly for young people, to our region.
