Chatsworth By-election 2005 : Home

The result in the Chatsworth by-election was a very good one for the Liberal Party. According to analysis by John Black, the 14 percent swing in this seat was a result of disaffection from the Beattie government of the professional and clerical voters who have provided it with its supremacy over the Nationals and Liberals. Much of it occurred in the Belmont Booth which draws on the brick and tile middle-class suburb of Carindale.

The Chatsworth and Redcliffe by-elections could signify the beginning of the end for the Labor Government. They are also important pointers to the ability of the Liberal Party to win seats in the metropolitan south-east corner, something they have had difficulty doing since the 1989 Fitzgerald election.
