Yaz Mubarakai, since 2017.
South-eastern Perth. Jandakot covers eastern parts of Cockburn LGA, along with small parts of Canning and Melville council areas. The seat covers the suburbs of Atwell, Aubin Grove, Banjup, Murdoch, North Lake and South Lake, and part of Leeming.
Jandakot contracted slightly on its northern edge, losing part of Leeming to Riverton. This change increased the Labor margin from 1.0% to 2.0%.
Jandakot in its current form was created at the 2008 election, but a seat of the same name previously existed from 1989 to 1996.
The original Jandakot was a safe Liberal seat, held by two successive Liberal MPs. The first, Barry MacKinnon, served as Opposition Leader before retiring in 1993. Mike Board won the seat in 1993.
In 1996, Jandakot was renamed to Murdoch and Board won that seat. He held it until 2005.
The restored seat of Jandakot was created as a notional Labor seat in 2008, but the seat was won by Liberal candidate Joe Francis. Francis was re-elected in 2013.
Francis lost in 2017 to Labor’s Yaz Mubarakai, who won a narrow victory after a massive 19% swing.

Jandakot was a very safe Liberal seat before the massive swing to Labor in 2017. Labor should hold on here, particularly if the Labor government is re-elected with a strong result, but this seat is not a typical Labor marginal.
