Reflections on the 2017 State Election – an informed view from Peter Kennedy

Guest Speaker -Peter Kennedy

As a highly respected political journalist, UWA graduate Peter Kennedy’s expertise makes him one of the most informed political commentators in the nation.

The decline of the Barnett Liberal Government, its feisty relations with the National Party leader Brendon Grylls, the impact of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party, and the ‘fresh approach’ canvassed by the Labor Party in the face of the State’s growing debt, made the 2017 election campaign both exciting and complex. The electorate has spoken but the question remains, what does the outcome mean for Western Australia?
