“We all have pertinent questions about the area and not the big picture of the election. Each candidate will be given an allotted period of time,” she said.

Organisations represented will include the Save Como Action Group, JMH Action Group and Manning Community Association.

Association deputy chairman Robin Mulder said he expected Development Assessment Panels, “mega high-rise buildings”, crime, the South Perth station precinct and traffic to be discussed.

The candidates for the seat of South Perth are: Jason St Martin (Micro Business Party); Max Francis (Independent); Mark Brogan (Greens); John McGrath (Liberal); Fiona Reid (Independent); Rosemary Steineck (Australian Christians); and Michael Voros (Labor).
