WHERE THEY WENT

* Daniel Andrews - Yallourn (in the electorate of Morwell, held by a retiring independent on a 1.8 per cent margin in 2018)

* Matthew Guy - Melbourne CBD (Melbourne, held by Greens on a 2.6 per cent margin in 2018).

WHAT THEY PROMISED

Greens

* Expand solar power subsidy eligibility for Victorian renters and apartment owner-occupiers.

OTHER TOPICS

* A new opinion poll shows Labor has lost skin among voters. The latest Resolve Strategic poll, published in The Age on Tuesday, signals the Andrews government could lose between eight and 12 seats in Saturday's vote.

* More than a dozen CFMEU workers ambushed Mr Guy during a press conference at Federation Square, declaring his plans to shelve the Suburban Rail Loop would result in mass job cuts across the construction sector.

* Upper house MP Catherine Cumming was cleared by Victoria Police of alleged inciteful behaviour during a speech at Flinders Street Station at the weekend, in which she attacked Premier Daniel Andrews by saying she wanted to turn him into "red mist".

* Nine billboards promoting Labor's Kat Theophanous have been removed by Darebin City Council officers from private properties in the lead-up to the November 26 election, prompting her to take the council to the Supreme Court.

WHAT THEY SAID

* "We're about renewable megawatts. Not mega profits for overseas companies" - Labor Leader Daniel Andrews

* "I believe that our state should be about unity, actually working together, having a premier that's focused on unifying Victorians. But at the moment we have a premier that is focused on division, intimidation and aggression" - Liberal Leader Matthew Guy

* "This is about turning a wasteland into a heartland - ensuring that we've got green open space for everybody to enjoy" - Deputy Liberal Leader David Southwick

* "For too long renters and people who live in their own apartments have been locked out of Labor's solar subsidy program. The Greens want to change that" - Victorian Greens Deputy Leader Ellen Sandall
