Ron Hoenig replaces Kristina Keneally

While the voters enrolled in Heffron has increased by 4.4% since the state election, the turnout for the by-election dropped from 88% to 66% of enrolled voters. The Liberal Party, which received a third of the votes in the 2011 state election, did not stand a candidate in the by-election.

Mr Hoenig increased the total number of ALP primary votes by 8.6% over the number cast for Ms Keneally during the landslide against her Labor government in 2011. Ms Faruqi, who contested both elections, saw a decline in primary votes for the Greens of 6.4%.

Mr Hoenig will replace former Premier Kristina Keneally who had held the seat since 2003. Following recent law changes he must surrender his mayoral role which is being contested for the ALP in Botany by Kristina Keneally’s husband, Ben Keneally.
