Monday 23 January 2023

For immediate release

Justine Farrugia has been elected as a councillor for Watts Ward in Melton City Council, after the Victorian Electoral Commission conducted a countback of votes at 11 am on Monday 23 January.

The election manager, Roger Millar, today declared the result after a countback of votes from the general election held in October 2020.

Only those candidates who were unsuccessful at the general election and who were still eligible to be elected were included in the countback process.

The extraordinary vacancy arose due to the election of Councillor Moira Deeming to the Victorian Parliament.
