Political Party: Labor (Incumbent MP)

Nick Staikos has been the MP for Bentleigh since the 2014 State Election. He previously served as a Councillor on the Glen Eira City Council.


Assessment:

Bentleigh is a very marginal seat and will be a key target for the Liberal Party in 2018. With that being said, Nick Staikos should benefit from a new personal vote which could help him hold on.
