Held by: Kevin Andrews

Party: Liberal Party

Since: Held continuously since 1991 when he  took over the seat from former Liberal minister Neil Brown in a by-election

Margin: 7.8%. It was 10% before the 2018 redistribution.

Redistribution details:

The seat of Menzies was rezoned in 2018 to include the suburbs of North Warrandyte, research, Eltham and Kangaroo Ground, coming from the Jagajaga electorate.

These suburbs joined Doncaster, Templestowe, Lower Plenty, Bulleen, Donvale, Park Orchards and Warranwood in the Menzies electorate.

Key Comments:

With 21,000 new voters entering the electorate, many from the Labor-held electorate of  Jagajaga. A majority of the electorate relies on buses for their public transport . Twenty per cent of Menzies electorate are aged over 65 so the Labor-proposed retirement tax is also set to be an issue.
