Cassie Rowe, since 2017.
Inner-eastern Perth. Belmont covers suburbs on the south side of the Swan River, including the suburbs Rivervale, Kewdale, Belmont, Cloverdale, Redcliffe, Ascot, Hazelmere and part of South Guilford. Belmont also covers the Burswood peninsula. The seat covers the entirety of Belmont council area, and parts of Victoria Park, Canning and Swan council areas.
Belmont has existed continuously since 1989, and previously from 1962 until 1974. The seat was held continuously by Labor until 2013.
The seat was won in 1989 by Eric Ripper.
Ripper had won a by-election in the seat of Ascot in 1988, after the resignation of former Deputy Premier Mal Bryce.
In 1989, Ascot was abolished and most of the population was put into Belmont.
Ripper served as Deputy Leader of the Opposition under Geoff Gallop from 1996 to 2001, and then Deputy Premier in the Gallop and Carpenter governments until 2008.
After the ALP lost power in 2008, Ripper became Leader of the Opposition. He held the position until early 2012, when he resigned and was replaced by Mark McGowan.
Ripper retired at the 2013 election, and Belmont was won by Liberal candidate Glenys Godfrey with a 7.6% swing.
Godfrey lost to Labor’s Cassie Rowe in 2017.
