Jessica Stojkovski, since 2017.
Northern Perth. Kingsley mostly lies in the southeastern corner of Joondalup council area, along with small parts of Wanneroo council area. The seat covers the suburbs of Woodvale, Kingsley, Greenwood and parts of Warwick.
Kingsley expanded to the south, taking in Hamersley from Balcatta and moving the southern boundary to the Reid Highway. These changes increased the Labor margin from 0.7% to 1.2%.
Kingsley has existed as a seat since 1989, and has been held by the Liberal Party at all but two elections.
Cheryl Edwardes won the seat in 1989. She served as a minister in the Court government in the 1990s, and retired in 2005. The ALP’s Judy Hughes won Kingsley in 2005 by less than 400 votes – the only Labor candidate to win a Liberal seat in 2005.
The Labor Party’s slim margin was almost entirely wiped out by the 2008 redistribution, and Hughes lost to Liberal candidate Andrea Mitchell with a 4.6% swing. Mitchell was re-elected in 2013, but lost in 2017 to Labor candidate Jessica Stojkovski with a swing of almost 15%.

Kingsley is a traditional Liberal seat, but was won by Labor in 2017 amidst a landslide election result. Current polling suggests Labor is on track for an ever bigger landslide victory, which would probably be enough to hold this seat.
