The latest electoral boundary redistribution will see the town of Kalbarri excised from the electorate of Moore.
The electorate of North West Central is to gain the town of Kalbarri, while the remainder of the Northampton Shire will remain in the seat of Moore, currently held by Shane Love.
Mr Love said he had thoroughly enjoyed representing the town of Kalbarri and would continue to do so until the new boundaries come into effect at the next state election on 13 March 2021.
“Should North West Central MP, Vince Catania have the support of voters in the 2021 election, he will be the National’s voice in Kalbarri,” Mr Love said.
“I am confident that Vince will serve the Kalbarri community with both dedication and passion and I wish him well.
“In the last term of government, Kalbarri had the benefit of numerous projects including the Kalbarri National Park upgrade, new multi purpose hardcourts and upgrades to the St John Ambulance subcentre and Volunteer Marine Rescue building, all backed by Royalties for Regions funding.”
Member for North West Central, Vince Catania said if elected in 2021, he was very much looking forward to working with the Kalbarri community who have been very strongly represented by colleague and fellow Nationals MP, Shane Love for many years.
“Shane Love leaves me with big shoes to fill,” Mr Catania said.
“I’ll be continuing the work he has undertaken with the people of Kalbarri to help strengthen and grow their community, along with bringing back Royalties for Regions in 2021.”
WA’s electoral boundaries are reviewed every four years – two years after a state election – to ensure each of the 59 Lower House electorates contains an comparable number of electors.
After the 2021 election, the electorate of Moore will gain the Shires of Wongan-Ballidu, Goomalling and Dowerin, formerly in the electorate of Central Wheatbelt, meanwhile Central Wheatbelt will gain the Shires of Kulin, Wickepin and Cuballing.
