Dominic Perrottet, Chris Minns contest narrows; Labor tipped to defeat Liberals

Labor leader Chris Minns has made a quick stop in the electorate of Oatley to share a coffee with one of the electorate’s most important constituents: his mum.

Cara Cranney joined Minns, his wife Anna and about 20 red T-shirt clad Labor volunteers for coffee before a short street walk to meet locals and business owners.

Asked about her son’s best qualities, Cranney said Minns was honest, “focused and very intelligent”.

“He hasn’t got a corrupt bone in his body,” she said, adding that his weakness was that he was “not eating enough”.

Oatley, which takes in southern Sydney suburbs such as Peakhurst, Lugarno and Beverly Hills, has been a Liberal stronghold of Minister for Multicultural Affairs Mark Coure since 2011.

Labor has considered the seat in play after electoral boundary redistributions sliced the Liberal margin from 10.5 per cent to 6.8 per cent, with one local on Monday saying Minns’ stop was the first time they had seen a leader of either major party visit the area ahead of an election.

Georges River councillor Ash Ambihaipahar is running for Labor in the seat.
