Steven Ciobo, since 2001.
Moncrieff covers the central part of the Gold Coast, covering the coast from Miami to Paradise Waters and Southport, and as far inland as Nerang.
Moncrieff expanded to take in Molendinar from Fadden. This cut the LNP margin from 14.9% to 14.6%.
Moncrieff was first created at the 1984 election, and has always been held by the Liberal (National) Party.
The seat was first won in 1984 by Kathy Sullivan, who had been a Queensland senator since 1974. Sullivan held the seat until 2001, serving continuously in Parliament for 27 years, a record for any female parliamentarian. She served two brief terms in the Opposition shadow ministry in the 1980s and 1990s, and served as a Parliamentary Secretary in the Howard government from 1997 to 2000.
Sullivan was succeeded in 2001 by Steven Ciobo. Ciobo has been elected in Moncrieff six times.
Sitting Liberal National MP Steve Ciobo is not running for re-election.
- Tracey Bell (Labor)
- Steve Ciobo (Liberal National)
- Garry Eilola (United Australia)
- Sally Spain (Greens)
Moncrieff is a safe LNP seat. Steve Ciobo’s retirement will hurt the LNP vote but it probably won’t be enough to change the outcome.
