Opposition Leader, Matthew Guy
At 11am today, the Victorian Electoral Commission officially declared Roma Britnell as the new Member for South-West Coast.
The final count showed Roma with a significant win of 60.40% on a two candidate preferred basis.
Roma will be sworn in as Member for South-West Coast during the next sitting week.
Comments attributable to Opposition Leader Matthew Guy:
I look forward to welcoming Roma to Parliament next week to be sworn in as the Member for South-West Coast.
Roma has worked extremely hard canvassing the views of her electorate and I know she will continue this work in Parliament to defeat the Andrews Labor Government.
Comments attributable to the Member-elect for South-West Coast Roma Britnell:
Now the real work begins to make sure the South-West Coast gets its fair share of state funding.
In just one year, Daniel Andrews has damaged the Victorian economy with the first budget deficit in 20 years and over 10,000 full-time jobs lost across regional Victoria.
I’ll be working with Matthew Guy and the Coalition team to make sure the Andrews Labor Government doesn’t continue neglecting our country roads and regional communities.
