The Division of Lyons takes its name from the only Tasmanian to be elected as Prime Minister, Joseph Lyons (1879-1939). There is only one main issue in Lyons and that’s forestry!

The Labor Party have an interesting candidate. Rebecca White who has been Minister in her first term should poll well. Michael Polley departing will make things interesting for the Labor Party. Former Forestry Tasmania boss, Bob Gordon and former member, David Llewellyn are contesting.

The Liberals should see Rene Hidding get elected first, however Mark Shelton could face a tough time keeping his job with former Federal Senator Guy Barnett having a run at State politics. The Greens should see Tim Morris re-elected.
