Wendy Lovell will recontest her seat in Victoria’s upper house at next year’s state election.
The MP said she had been pre-selected by the Liberal Party to contest the Northern Victoria seat in the upper house.
‘‘Today I received the official letter from the Liberal Party endorsing my candidacy for the number one position on the Coalition ticket,’’ Ms Lovell said.
‘‘I have been a member of state parliament for 15 years, since being first elected to the upper house seat of North Eastern Province in 2002.
‘‘I have represented the Northern Victoria region since its inception in 2006, and am excited to have once again been given the opportunity to be elected to continue working to deliver assistance to the approximately 500000 constituents in the region.’’
