The Greens WA party has nominated a candidate to stand in the long-held Liberal seat of Forrest at the upcoming Federal Election.

Dalyellup resident and Capel Shire councillor Christine Terrantroy announced on Monday she would represent the Greens WA for the seat, currently held by Liberal MHR Nola Marino.

WA Labor nominated Bunbury resident Bronwen English to stand as their representative for the seat of Forrest last month.

Mrs Terrantroy announced her intention to run in a statement on the party’s website earlier this week.

“Addressing the long-standing issues of climate, equality, accessibility, justice and political accountability are important in building progressive and caring communities.”

Mrs Terrantroy will follow on the Greens Federal election policy platforms of climate action, housing affordability and quality aged care.

“This is our last election for real climate action,” she said.

“The Greens are calling for a just transition towards renewable energy, which will help us to reach our 2030 climate-action targets while creating hundreds of thousands of jobs.”

The Federal Election is tipped to be called in early May.
