The Prime Minister’s wish has been granted. Outgoing member for Higgins and Cabinet minister, Kelly O’Dwyer will be succeeded by a woman: paediatrician and candidate for the Victorian state seat of Prahran in last November’s Danslide, Dr Katie Allen.
According to the Age, Allen beat former Liberal state vice-president and last year’s challenger of now-ousted state president Michael Kroger and fellow Higgins local, Greg Hannan, by 158 to 116 votes in the third ballot.
