Lisa Baker, since 2008.
North-eastern Perth. Maylands mostly lies in the City of Bayswater, with a small part in the City of Stirling. The district covers the suburbs of Bedford, Embleton, Inglewood and Maylands, and parts of Bayswater and Morley.
Maylands has existed continuously since 1930. The ALP has won the seat at every election bar one since 1956.
John Harman won the seat back in 1968 for the ALP after one term of a Liberal Party MP. He held the seat until his retirement in 1986.
Harman was succeeded by Peter Dowding, a cabinet minister and a Member of the Legislative Council since 1979. Dowding became Premier in 1988, and served for two years before being ousted in 1990.
Dowding resigned from Maylands in 1990, triggering a by-election that was won by Judy Edwards.
Edwards held Maylands for eighteen years, serving as a minister from 2001 to 2006, and retiring in 2008.
Lisa Baker won Maylands in 2008, again as the Labor candidate, and she was re-elected in 2013 and 2017.
