Burt – Australia 2022

ALP 5.5%

Incumbent MP
Matt Keogh, since 2016.

Geography
South of Perth. Burt covers parts of Armadale and Gosnells council areas, including the suburbs of Armadale, Beckenhma, Gosnells, Huntingdale, Kelmscott, Kenwick, Orange Grove, Thornlie and Westfield.

Redistribution
Burt gained Beckenham and Kenwick from Hasluck and Orange Grove from Canning, and lost Canning Vale to Tangney. These changes increased the Labor margin from 5.0% to 5.5%.

History
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. Keogh was re-elected in 2019.
