Peter Gutwein, Premier

Legislative Council elections

I’d like to congratulate Jo Palmer for her enormous efforts in campaigning for the Legislative Council seat of Rosevears.

While it remains a tight race and too early to call, Jo has received the most primary votes counted to date. This is a strong endorsement of the Liberal Party’s policies and plans to rebuild a stronger Tasmania from the impacts of COVID-19.

It’s been a challenging environment to campaign in and we are cautiously optimistic that Jo will win the seat after postal votes are counted, preferences are distributed and the vote is finalised in coming days.
