‘Competitive’ Liberal preselection race emerges for Fadden by-election | Englishheadline


Stuart Robert’s retirement from parliament has brought a competitive preselection race with three Liberal nominees for the Fadden by-election, Englishheadline Political Editor Andrew Clennell says.

The nominees include emergency doctor and Quadriplegic Dinesh Palipana, Gold Coast City Councillor Cameron Caldwell and the Federal Electorate party president and businesswoman Fran Ward.

“Despite a 9.8 per cent margin in the seat, the Labor party is expected to run,” Mr Clennell said.

“There is enthusiasm from the Queensland branch of Labor to give it a crack to attempt to win a swing off the Opposition.”
