Liberals could lose Bennelong: academic

November 13, 2017

Former Liberal member for Bennelong John Alexander will face a by-election on December 16.

Voters in the Sydney seat of Bennelong will go to the polls on December 16 in a by-election which could destabilise the Turnbull government.

House Speaker Tony Smith on Monday issued a writ for the poll triggered by the resignation of sitting Liberal MP John Alexander over his dual British citizenship.

Mr Alexander, who is part of Malcolm Turnbull's one-seat majority government, has said he will contest the seat.
