One of the riskiest seats for the Liberal Party in the upcoming NSW Election will be in the spotlight at the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies’ March plenum.
Coogee is held by the Liberal Party by a margin of just 2.9% and is among six seats the Coalition is at risk of losing, potentially leading to a minority government according to News Corp NSW Political Editor Andrew Clennell. NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian told The Australian “It’s going to be really tight. It will come down to a handful of votes in a handful of seats. Anyone telling you otherwise isn’t telling the truth”.
The sitting member for Coogee is Liberal member Bruce Notley-Smith MP, the current Chair of the NSW Parliamentary Friends of Israel. His challenger from the Labor Party is Dr Marjorie O’Neill, who holds a PhD in Management and Economics and sits on Waverley Council.
Board of Deputies CEO Vic Alhadeff said, “the Coogee electorate encompasses a number of our major institutions including the Emanuel School, Moriah College and the Montefiore (Randwick) as well as a large percentage of our community generally. The election forum will be an opportunity for the community to hear directly from the candidates”.
The Coogee electorate covers the suburbs: Bronte, Bondi Junction, Clovelly, Coogee, Randwick, Queens Park, South Bondi, South Coogee, Tamarama, Waverley.
