Liberals not running candidate in Whitlam


The Ballot positions for the Federal seat of Whitlam have been revealed at today's candidate declaration, with the incumbent member Stephen Jones taking out fourth spot.

However Mr. Jones says he's a little surprised, the Liberal Party have decided not to nominate a candidate and believes the local branches are boycotting Scott Morrison.

Traditional Liberal voters will instead have to consider whether they'll vote for Stephen Wentworth who's representing the Nationals.

Mr. Wentworth is a Agricultural Consultant from Bowral.

In the meantime, Mr. Jones says the election campaign is going to be decided between, what he believes is the chaos and division of the Government and a Labor Party that's promising better schools, hospitals, universities and Tafe.
