Victorian Opposition Leader Matthew Guy has rallied the party faithful at day two of the Liberal state conference, saying his party has what it takes to boot Labor Premier Daniel Andrews out of office in 19 months time.

Introduced at the Melbourne event on Sunday as "the man who will put Victoria back on track", Mr Guy gave a passionate speech in which he took aim at Labor's policies, including the safe schools program and the scrapping of the East West Link.

He said parents should be able to determine their children's education on issues of sex and gender, rather than the government, and he vowed to build the East West link if voted in.

With a phrase reminiscent of Trump's 'Make America great again', Mr Guy said a Liberal state government would "make Victoria safe again" by tightening bail rules.

"If you offend on bail, you'll go to jail," he said.

"Bail is a privilege, not a right."

Mr Guy also railed against the closure of Hazelwood power station and vowed to keep remaining power stations Loy Yang and Yallourn open.

He told the audience it would take more than just Liberal MPs to win the next state election. All party members were needed to "get political" on social media and in their community to raise voter support.

On Saturday, state president Michael Kroger was re-elected unopposed after his only challenger Peter Reith withdrew.
