Alex Turnbull has urged voters in Wentworth not to vote for the Liberal Party at the upcoming by-election. The son of former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull claims that the Liberal Party has been taken over by the "hard right", and that voters need to send a message to the federal government on climate change. Liberal candidate Dave Sharma is regarded as slightly ahead of independent candidate Dr Kerryn Phelps in polling. The government needs to win the by-election to retain its one-seat majority in the House of Representatives.
