Peter Katsambanis, since 2017. Previously Member of the Legislative Council for North Metropolitan 2013-2017, Member of the Victorian Legislative Council for Monash Province 1996-2002.
Northern Perth. Hillarys covers central parts of the Joondalup council area, including Hillarys, Craigie, Kallaroo, Padbury and Sorrento.
Hillarys shifted north, losing Sorrento to Carine and gaining Mullaloo and Beldon from Joondalup. These changes wiped out the Liberal margin of 4.1%, leaving the sitting member with a margin of just 0.1%.
The seat of Hillarys has existed since 1996. The seat has been won by the Liberal candidate at every election.
Hillarys was won by Liberal MP Rob Johnson, who had first been elected to parliament to represent Whitford in 1993. Johnson became a minister in the Liberal government in 1999, serving until the government’s defeat in 2001. Johnson was re-elected in 2001, 2005 and 2008, and became police minister after the 2008 election.
Johnson lost his ministry in a reshuffle in 2012, and was re-elected again in 2013. Johnson resigned from the Liberal Party in early 2016, after longstanding conflict with the premier, Colin Barnett.
Johnson ran as an independent in 2017, but lost to Liberal MLC Peter Katsambanis.

Hillarys has a long history of being held by the Liberal Party. The splitting of the Liberal vote in 2017 wouldn’t have helped the party and they’ll be hoping that Katsambanis will have strengthened his personal vote since that election, but current polling suggests a further collapse in the Liberal vote which would likely sweep out Katsambanis.
