Premier Colin Barnett has kicked off the Liberal's campaign for next month's State Election by trumpeting his Government's achievements and warning voters WA Labor could change the State.
Opposition leader Mark McGowan responded by saying the "real risk" was Mr Barnett's lack of planning for WA’s future and his “wrong priorities”.
Mr Barnett yesterday asked WA Governor Malcolm McCusker to issue writs to direct the Electoral Commissioner to hold the State Election on March 9 for 59 lower house seats and six upper house regions.
The Premier also officially enacted caretaker provisions which means no major policy decisions can be made until the election result is known.In a press conference before meeting with Mr McCusker, Mr Barnett trumpeted his Government’s achievements in the last term, but spoke of the “growing pains” for the State.
