Buninyong electoral boundary announcement set this week


MP Michaela Settle might see her seat of Buninyong drastically changed if a review into Victoria’s electoral boundaries is approved this week.

Under the proposal, Buninyong loses areas of Ballarat, East Ballarat, Sebastopol and Golden Point and gains Bacchus Marsh.
It also sees Juliana Addison’s seat of Wendouree renamed to Eureka.
Michaela says the boundaries will be announced on Thursday.
"When someone draws a pen across your electorate and completely changes it I won't lie, I've had some tears at the thought of losing some really good friends and communities that I've built up."
"With everything, you also get new communities because redistribution is about maintaining the same amount of voters in every electorate," Ms Settle said.
