Re-counts in two Legislative Council regions
Martin Aldridge and Dave Grills, both of The Nationals, were elected at re-counts held on
5 April 2013 to fill vacancies in the Agricultural Region and Mining and Pastoral Region respectively.
These vacancies arose due to the resignations of Mia Davies and Wendy Duncan to contest the lower house seats of Central Wheatbelt and Kalgoorlie respectively, to which they were both elected.
Both of these positions are for the current term of the Legislative Council, which expires on
21 May 2013. From 22 May 2013, both members will remain in the Legislative Council, having also been elected at the recent 2013 State General Election for those regions.
