Ex-Labor candidate now 'helping' Liberals after the ALP didn't run in his seat again

Justin Seddon was running in Narracan until the election was declared failed.

Labor's former candidate for the Victorian seat of Narracan, Justin Seddon, is now 'helping' out the Liberal candidate in the supplementary election in the seat.

It comes after Labor's decision not to run in the seat again, despite recieving more than 35% of the vote at the 2018 election.

Posting a picture of the pair to Instagram, Liberal candidate Wayne Farnham thanked Seddon for 'helping out' in Drouin.

Both were wearing Victorian Liberal Party caps.

It's previously been reported by the Pakenham Gazette that Seppon - who is also the Nar Nar Goon Fire Brigade captain - had no past connection to the Labor Party when announced as a candidate, and was "present for a Liberal Party promise to fund a new Nar Nar Goon Fire Station" back in October.

The VEC announced the supplementary election for January 28 Nationals candidate Shaun Gilchrist died after the start of early voting for the back in November.

The seat has been held by retiring Liberal member Gary Blackwood safely since 2006, with the most recent election bringing Blackwood to 52% of the primary vote.
