Phelps to stand for Went­worth

The Advertiser - - NEWS -

HIGH-PRO­FILE Sydney doc­tor Ker­ryn Phelps has urged vot­ers put the Lib­eral Party last af­ter con­firm­ing she will run as an in­de­pen­dent for Mal­colm Turn­bull’s for­mer seat of Went­worth.

But the Sydney City Coun­cil­lor and for­mer Aus­tralian Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent, pic­tured, says if elected in the Oc­to­ber 20 Went­worth by-elec­tion, she won’t be a desta­bil­is­ing pres­ence and has guar­an­teed she won’t block gov­ern­ment sup­ply.

The Lib­er­als have never lost the seat, in Sydney’s eastern sub­urbs.

“The peo­ple here are frus­trated, an­gry and in de­spair about what hap­pened to Mal­colm Turn­bull,” Dr Phelps said yes­ter­day.
