Tony Buti, since 2010.
Armadale covers south-eastern parts of Perth, including Armadale, Brookdale, Mount Richon, Hilbert, Haynes, Seville Grove, Champion Lakes, Mount Nasura, Camillo and Kelmscott. The entire seat lies within the Armadale council area.
The seat of Armadale has existed since 1983, and has always been held by Labor.
Armadale was first won in 1983 by Labor MP Bob Pearce, who had held the seat of Gosnells since 1977. Pearce had joined the Labor frontbench in 1980, and became a minister after the 1983 election. He was re-elected in 1986 and 1989, and served as a minister until 1992. He retired at the 1993 election.
Pearce was succeeded in 1993 by Labor MP Kay Hallahan. Hallahan had held a seat in the Legislative Council since 1983, and had served as a minister since 1986. Hallahan became deputy leader of the opposition after Labor’s defeat in the 1993 election, serving in that role until 1994. She retired in 1996.
Alannah MacTiernan, another Labor member of the upper house, replaced Hallahan in Armadale in 1996. MacTiernan had been elected to the upper house in 1993 after five years on Perth City Council.
MacTiernan was re-elected in 2001, 2005 and 2008, and served as a minister in the Labor state government from 2001 until 2008.
MacTiernan resigned from Armadale in 2010 to contest the federal seat of Canning. She was unsuccessful in this contest, and went on to win election as Mayor of the City of Vincent in 2011. MacTiernan won the federal seat of Perth in 2013, and retired in 2016.
The 2010 Armadale by-election was won by Labor’s Tony Buti. Buti has been re-elected twice.
