7NEWS Election NSW – Amelia Brace and Michael Usher to lead political heavyweights for the state’s best election coverage
7NEWS will deliver the most experienced and authoritative election coverage when NSW voters go to the polls this Saturday.
State Political Editor Amelia Brace and 7NEWS presenter Michael Usher are set to lead a panel of political heavyweights from 5.00pm on Channel 7 and 7plus, dissecting the up-to-the-minute voting trends which will determine who will form the state’s next Government.
Bringing their insider knowledge and campaign prowess to the NSW Decides 2023 broadcast, the 7NEWS expert panel includes:
* David Elliott, the Liberal Party’s most experienced minister, known for his bomb-throwing skills, who is leaving politics and won’t be afraid to share his thoughts on the way out;
* Labor powerbroker and tactician, Jo Haylon, a senior shadow minister who has been central to her party’s campaign and is also a close confidante of Opposition Leader Chris Minns and Prime Minister Anthony Albanese;
* Nationals MP Melinda Pavey, who has variously been a minister for roads, water, and housing during her 35-year political career and should know early in the night if the bush can save the Coalition;
* And last, but not least, one of Australia’s most controversial politician, Mark Latham, who knows the movements in every marginal seat, brings his unique knowledge of the inner workings of the Labor party (as its former leader) and stands a strong chance of holding the balance of power in the NSW Upper House.
7NEWS political editor Mark Riley returns with his famed “Screen of Dreams”, while Chief Reporter Chris Reason and Chris Maher will each report from Labor and Liberal party headquarters.
7NEWS Sydney news director, Jason Morrison, said:
“We have chosen experts who are all current or key players in NSW politics today, and who will share their insider news and headlining views in what is shaping to be an election like no other.
“Amelia Brace showed her dominance in state political reporting when she masterfully managed both Premier Dominic Perrottet and Chris Minns during the 7NEWS Leaders debate this month. She and Michael Usher will our on-air team, who have seen more elections than any other network.”
