There will be a by-election in a marginal LNP seat in Queensland in the next few months after Liberal National MP Jann Stuckey announced her resignation.
Stuckey has held Currumbin since 2004 and won in 2017 by a 3.3% margin. Stuckey announced last week she planned to resign.
The by-election date is yet to be set but it seems quite likely that it will be held on March 28, the same day as Queensland’s local government election.
Currumbin is the seventh-most marginal LNP seat in the state parliament and if Labor were to win it would increase their majority in the parliament in the lead up to the October state election.
Currumbin covers the southern end of the Gold Coast.
