Division of Hasluck
Australian House of Representatives Division
Division of Hasluck (green) in Western Australia
|Namesake||Paul Hasluck; Alexandra Hasluck|
|Area||245 km2 (94.6 sq mi)|
The division was proclaimed at a redistribution of Western Australia's electoral divisions on 20 November 2000, and first contested at the 2001 federal election. The eponyms of the division are Sir Paul Hasluck, the Governor-General of Australia from 1969 to 1974, and his wife, Alexandra Hasluck, an author.
Hasluck is a marginal division; the suburban northern and southern areas of the division favour the Labor Party; the remainder of the division is less urbanised and favours the Liberal Party. The division changed hands between the Labor Party and Liberal Party at the first four elections it was contested. At the 2013 federal election there was a swing towards the incumbent Liberal member Ken Wyatt, breaking this pattern.
Ken Wyatt is the first Indigenous Australian member of the House of Representatives.
The division is located in the eastern suburbs of Perth, and includes the following suburbs:
|Swan/Mundaring||Shire of Kalamunda||City of Gosnells|
