QLD Politics: Currumbin By-Election Preview

Queenslanders in the state seats of Bundamba and Currumbin go to the polls this weekend in what could be one of the strangest election days in national history as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the nation and comes amid government requirements for isolation.

Queenslanders will also go to the polls to vote in local council elections, potentially complicating the two state by-elections.

Currumbin By-Election

Currumbin covers the southern part of the Gold Coast and hits the NSW border. LNP member Jann Stuckey has held the seat since 2004 but resigned amid claims of bullying and an orchestrated campaign by the ALP against her.

Stuckey won the last election on a margin of just 3.3% and the resignation removes her strong personal vote. Recent opinion polls have this as a genuine coin flip.

The smart money in this election is on the ALP’s Kaylee Campradt. She was pre-selected in anticipation of Stuckey’s departure while the LNP have had plenty of drama finding a replacement including disenfranchised local branches. Any price better than $1.60 is a bet on Labor here.
