MICHAEL Voros is up for the challenge of the seemingly improbable task of toppling the Liberals in the seat of South Perth.

The Como resident has been announced as the Labor candidate in the seat ahead of the State election in March.

Labor has never held the seat, which came into existence in 1950, and incumbent John McGrath secured 67 per cent of the primary votes in the 2013 State election.

Mr Voros said he was excited to run for the seat for the first time.

“I think there is a mood for change; there is a view that the State Government is tired and complacent,” he said.

“I’m looking to provide an alternative and in the coming months, I’ll be working with the local people.”

Mr Voros said health, education and public transport were all issues for South Perth ahead of the election.

“I’m passionate about families and I want to see the South Perth electorate continue to be a great place for families and that’s something that drives me,” he said.

“I’m also a passionate cyclist, I ride my bicycle or catch public transport to my job as a lawyer in the Perth CBD.”
