New South Wales citizens go to the polls this Saturday to decide who rules the State for the next four years.
Public opinion polls suggest the result is on a knife’s edge between Liberal reigning premier Gladys Berejiklian and Labor’s Michael Daley with some pundits claiming the possibility of a hung parliament with Independents ruling the roost.
Local interest will focus on Ryde, where Liberal MP Victor Dominello is being strongly challenged by Ryde’s Labor mayor Jerome Laxale and in Lane Cove where Liberal’s Anthony Roberts is under fire by former Hunters Hill mayor Independent Richard Quinn.
