Wangaratta Chronicle - - Front Page -

THE par­lia­men­tary fu­ture of In­de­pen­dent Indi MP Cathy McGowan has again been brought into ques­tion.

In to­day’s Wan­garatta Chron­i­cle (page 4), Voices 4 Indi - the com­mu­nity group be­hind Ms McGowan’s mirac­u­lous rise to power in the 2013 fed­eral elec­tion - is be­gin­ning a for­mal process to an­noint a suc­ces­sor for Ms McGowan.

Voices 4 Indi is invit­ing “ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from peo­ple as­pir­ing to be an Orange In­de­pen­dent Can­di­date for Indi”.

Voices 4 Indi was unavail­able for com­ment yes­ter­day.

In a state­ment re­leased yes­ter­day af­ter­noon, Ms McGowan wel­comed Voices 4 Indi’s an­nounce­ment invit­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from those seek­ing to be­come an In­de­pen­dent can­di­date for Indi.

“I have pre­vi­ously given my sup­port to suc­ces­sion plan­ning in Indi and I wel­come the process led by Voices 4 Indi,” Ms McGowan’s state­ment read.

“I en­cour­age those with an in­ter­est in pol­i­tics to put their hand up in re­sponse.

“I look for­ward to be­ing part of the process un­der­taken by Voices 4 Indi.

“I ex­pect the out­come will as­sist my de­ci­sion about the fu­ture.”
