Anthony Albanese has announced that he will run again in his Sydney electorate of Grayndler
The proposed redistribution of NSW electoral boundaries led to speculation that Albanese might contest Barton but final changes have improved the ALP’s margin in Grayndler. The ABC’s Antony Green has calculated the new margin as 18.1% in the ALP’s favour.
Albanese has held Grayndler since 1996. A safe Labor seat, it was created in 1949 and has been represented by Fred Daly (1949-75), Tony Whitlam (1975-77), Frank Stewart (1977-79), Leo McLeay (1979-93) and Jeannette McHugh (1993-96).
