The Electoral district of Kororoit is an electorate of the Victorian Legislative Assembly[1] covering Albanvale, Caroline Springs as well as some parts of Deer Park and St Albans in the western suburbs of Melbourne.

The seat was created prior to the 2002 election and with the same redistribution turning Labor Party powerbroker and cabinet minister Andre Haermeyer's seat of Yan Yean into a marginal Liberal seat, Haermeyer decided to contest Kororoit. He won the seat with a margin of 27.1% making it the fourth safest Labor seat in the state.

The seat is currently held by Marlene Kairouz, who was elected in a by-election following the resignation of Andre Haermeyer.
