DOC­TOR EYES PAR­LIA­MENT

The Australian Women's Weekly - - In Brief -

The Weekly’s own Ker­ryn Phelps may soon be giv­ing health tips from Par­lia­ment af­ter she put up her hand to fill the va­cancy left by Mal­colm Turn­bull’s de­par­ture from pol­i­tics. Pro­fes­sor Phelps an­nounced she will con­test the Went­worth by-elec­tion as an in­de­pen­dent later this month, say­ing peo­ple want to see a gov­ern­ment “with heart”. If Pro­fes­sor Phelps beats Lib­eral can­di­date David Sharma the gov­ern­ment will lose its ma­jor­ity, but she has said her in­ten­tion is to bring “in­tegrity and sta­bil­ity”, pledg­ing she would not block sup­ply.
