Dean Nalder, since 2017. Previously member for Alfred Cove 2013-2017.
Inner-southern Perth. Bateman covers the suburbs of Bateman, Booragoon, Mount Pleasant, Myaree, Winthrop and Kardinya. Bateman entirely lies inside the City of Melville.
Bateman expanded slightly south, taking in Kardinya from Willagee. These changes cut the Liberal margin from 9.5% to 8.2%.
Bateman was created in 2008, largely replacing the former district of Murdoch. Murdoch had existed from 1977 to 1989 and from 1996 to 2008, and was always won by the Liberal Party.
Murdoch was won in 2005 by Trevor Sprigg. He died in January 2008, triggering a by-election.
The 2008 by-election was easily won by Liberal candidate Christian Porter.
Porter was immediately appointed as Shadow Attorney-General. Murdoch was largely replaced by Bateman in 2008, and Porter was appointed Attorney-General in the newly elected Liberal government.
Porter became Treasurer in late 2010. In late 2012 he stepped down from the front bench to run for the federal seat of Pearce at the 2013 federal election, and stepped down from the state parliament at the 2013 election in anticipation of his federal run. He was elected to represent Pearce in 2013 and was re-elected in 2016.
The Liberal Party’s Matt Taylor won Bateman in 2013.
The redistribution prior to the 2017 election abolished the neighbouring seat of Alfred Cove and redrew Bateman significantly, taking in large parts of Alfred Cove and losing other areas to the newly-named seat of Bicton. Taylor moved to Bicton where he was defeated for re-election.
Bateman was won in 2017 by the Liberal Party’s Dean Nalder who had won Alfred Cove in 2013.
Sitting Liberal MP Dean Nalder is not running for re-election.
