Seat of Gippsland East

(Eastern Victoria)
Safe. Nationals 17.9%

Profile:

The seat of Gippsland East covers most of eastern Victoria and includes the towns of Bairnsdale, Lakes Entrance, Orbost, Omeo, Maffra and Heyfield. Gippsland East is the state's third largest lower house electorate in land area, covering 27,531 square kilometres.

Gippsland East has been contested continuously since 1889, and has usually been held by the conservative parties. In 1999, independent candidate Craig Ingram unexpectedly won the seat, off the back of preferences from One Nation, another independent and Labor, ending the National Party's nearly 70 year hold on the seat and also ending the Kennett Government in the resulting hung parliament. Ingram went on to retain the seat at the 2002 and 2006 elections. He, however, would lose the seat in 2010, amid criticism over his failing to return home when devastating floods hit the region in 2007. The seat has since reverted to being a safe Nationals seat.

The Nationals don't seem to be under as much pressure from independent challengers in Victoria's east. Gippsland East should remain safely with the Nationals in 2018.
