News Today || Headlines Today

The Liberal stronghold of Curtin could come down to the wire, with the independent challenger telling The West she was not expecting a result tonight.

The seat is held by Liberal MP Celia Hammond for the Liberals on a margin of 13.9 per cent.

It covers the western suburbs of Perth and following the abolition of the seat of Stirling it has been extended north to include the rest of Scarborough and Trigg as well as the suburbs of Karrinyup and Gwelup.

Ms Hammond has been the MP since 2019, taking over from Julie Bishop after more than 20 years.
