Seat of Pascoe Vale

(Northern Melbourne)
Safe. Labor 16.8%

Profile:

Pascoe Vale sits within the mid-northern suburbs, sitting on the boundary (Bell St) of the inner city, of Melbourne and includes the suburbs of Pascoe Vale, Coburg North, Glenroy and Hadfield.

The current incarnation of Pascoe Vale has existed since 1985 and has always been held by Labor by very large margins. Gentrification in the area has given rise to a significant Greens vote in parts of the seat, particularly in the south and east of the seat, as have recent high-profile campaigns by the Greens within the corresponding federal seat of Wills.

Incumbent MP:

Lizzie Blandthorn (Labor) - since 2014. Pictured right.
