Key Comments

Page is a marginal ‘bellwether' seat, which has gone to the government since 1990. A mainly rural electorate, Page is rated one of Australia's poorest electorates. Key issues here include Pacific Highway development, health and education funding, renewable energy sector support and protecting agricultural lands from mining.
