Michelle Roberts, since 1996. Previously Member for Glendalough 1994-1996.
Eastern Perth. Midland covers the suburbs of Guilford, Midland, Woodbridge, Viveash, Midvale, Stratton, Jane Brook, Swan View, Greenmount, Koongamia, Bellevue, Helena Valley, Boya, Caversham and parts of Middle Swan. The seats cover parts of Mundaring and Swan councils.
Midland lost part of Caversham in the north-western corner of Midland to Bassendean. This change slightly reduced the Labor margin from 13% to 12.8%.
The seat of Midland was created at the 1996 redistribution, and was first won by the ALP’s Michelle Roberts.
Roberts was first elected to the seat of Glendalough at a 1994 by-election after the resignation of former Premier Carmen Lawrence.
Glendalough was abolished in 1996, and Roberts won Midland.
She held Midland in 1996 with a 4.3% margin. This was expanded to 13.5% in 2001 before falling back 8.5% in 2005 and 8.3% in 2008.
Roberts was narrowly re-elected in 2013, winning by 24 votes after an 8.2% swing to the Liberal Party. Roberts was re-elected comfortably in 2017.
