Matt Keogh, since 2016.
South of Perth. Burt covers parts of Armadale, Canning and Gosnells council areas, including the suburbs of Armadale, Canning Vale, Gosnells, Huntingdale, Kelmscott, Thornlie and Westfield.
Burt was first created in 2016, primarily out of parts of Canning. That seat had been a marginal seat, leaning towards the Liberal Party.
Labor’s Matt Keogh lost the 2015 Canning by-election to Liberal candidate Andrew Hastie. He then went on to win Burt at the 2016 election.
Burt leans towards Labor, but is not entirely safe.
