Basil Zempilas set to be elected as WA Liberals candidate ahead of state election


Perth’s Lord Mayor and well-known TV personality, Basil Zempilas is on track to become the candidate for the Western Australian Liberals in the Churchlands seat for the 2025 state election. 

According to ABC News, no one is reported to be going up against Zempilas, making his victory seem very likely. However, he still needs to go through the formalities of the Liberal preselection process.

The Churchlands seat, previously held by the Liberals for eight years, slipped away to Labor in 2021. 

Now, with Zempilas in the running, the Liberals hope to get it back.

Zempilas brings a unique blend of experience to the table. It is believed that if he secures the seat, it could lead to a significant step for the WA Liberals as they aim to make a comeback in state politics.
