Ryan By-Election (2001)

The Ryan by-election was held because of the resignation of the sitting member, John Moore.

The Liberal Party had held the Queensland seat since its creation in 1949.

There was a two-party-preferred swing of 9.69% in the by-election, delivering a narrow victory to the Labor candidate, Leonie Short.
