Margin – ALP 14.8%
Southern Brisbane. Stretton covers the suburbs of Kuraby, Calamvale, Drewvale, Stretton and parts of Runcorn and Sunnybank Hills, at the southern end of the City of Brisbane.
Stretton was created in 2001, replacing the seat of Sunnybank which had existed since 1992.
Labor’s Stephen Robertson held the seat of Sunnybank and then Stretton continuously from 1992 to 2012. He served as a minister in the Beattie/Bligh government from 1998 to 2012.
In 2012, Robertson retired, and Stretton was won by LNP candidate Freya Ostapovitch with a 19% swing.
Ostapovitch lost to Labor’s Duncan Pegg in 2015. Pegg was re-elected in 2017 and 2020, and held the seat until his death in 2021.
