Benalla Liberal Party President Tony Schneider confirms his nomination for pre-selection as Liberal candidate for Euroa.LIBBY PRICE July 23, 2014 4:00am
Benalla physiotherapist Tony Scheider is nominating for pre-selection for the liberal party as candidate for the State seat of Euroa.
Benalla physiotherapist Tony Schnieder has confirmed he has nominated for Liberal pre-selection for the state seat of Euroa.
Mr Schneider is the current president of the Benalla Branch of the Liberal Party.
The decision by the party to stand a candidate against the Nationals contrary to a Coalition agreement has infuriated the Nationals. The agreement made between the Liberals and the Nationals in 2008 included not standing candidates against each other in three-cornered contests unless otherwise agreed.
This will pit the Liberal candidate against the Nationals’ 28-year-old Steph Ryan, a former journalist and adviser to Agriculture and Water Minister Peter Walsh. She has also worked as an adviser to Nationals leader Peter Ryan and former premier Ted Baillieu.
Mr Schneider said things had changed since the agreement was made.
‘‘The boundaries of the electorate have changed (from Benalla to the larger electorate of Euroa) and Bill Sykes is no longer running. I don’t think we’d be running if these two things hadn’t happened.’’
Mr Schneider did not know if anyone else had nominated for pre-selection for the seat.
The Liberal Party is yet to say when it will announce who has won pre-selection.
