Basil Zempilas Set to Become WA Liberal Candidate for Churchlands

Zempilas, a well-known figure in the local media scene, is expected to breeze through the preselection process as the only contender for the Liberal candidacy in Churchlands. The seat, formerly a stronghold for the Liberal Party but lost to Labor in the last state election, presents an opportunity for Zempilas to make a mark in the political arena.

The shift in candidates for the WA Liberals sees Zempilas stepping up alongside other new faces like Sandra Brewer and Vince Connelly. Despite speculation of Zempilas potentially taking on a leadership role within the party, he has repeatedly denied any ambitions for such positions. His involvement in local politics, including recent clashes with the Labor government over community services, has garnered attention as he transitions into the political landscape.
