Pike is returned as MP

30 Nov 2010

Local member Bronwyn Pike was returned to Parliament in the November 27 state election.

On two-party preferred figures, Ms Pike won easily in the end with 57.93 per cent compared with 42.07 per cent for Greens candidate Brian Walters.  The Liberal Party’s decision to preference the Greens last was the deciding factor.

Docklands voted Liberal and was one of only three booths in the district to do so.  In East Melbourne, Docklands and Melbourne, the Liberals attracted the most primary votes.

Of 940 votes cast in Docklands, 420 went to Liberal candidate Luke Martin, 255 to Ms Pike and 184 to Mr Walters.  Interestingly, the Sex Party polled proportionately better in Docklands than anywhere else in the electoral district, picking up 40 votes.

In last month’s Docklands News online survey, no single issue emerged.

The issues of serviced apartments as well as the Port of Melbourne’s proposed low rail bridge received equal top billing – each with 40 per cent of the vote.

Two other  issues received 10 per cent of the vote respectively – traffic gridlock and lack of community infrastructure.  Only 10 votes were cast in the survey.
