Cottesloe by-election coming up on March 17

There will be a state election for the seat of Cottesloe in Western Australia on March 17, to elect a successor to former Liberal premier Colin Barnett. He had announced his retirement in December, with the election date announced yesterday.

This election will coincide with the South Australian election, and is the third election scheduled for March, with a possibility that the Batman federal by-election will also be held in March.

The by-election will likely be a contest between the Liberal Party and the Greens, but the Liberals will likely retain the seat with ease.
