Key Comments: Independent Kerryn Phelps beat Liberal Dave Sharma in the October 2018 by-election triggered by Malcolm Turnbull’s resignation. The gay celebrity doctor and asylum-seeker champion will defend her slim margin, again against Sharma, in May. Covering some of Sydney’s most affluent harbour- and beach-side suburbs, Wentworth has never been held by the ALP.
