Another big name is expected to be added to the list to contest the seat of Mayo in the upcoming by-election.

The Greens will reportedly announce today (Thurs May 17) that Aboriginal Elder Major Moogy Sumner AM, a well known voice on the Fleurieu as a member of the Njarrindjeri Regional Authority and his work on the Fight for the Bight and Save the Murray campaigns, will contest the seat.

The seat will also be contested by former Liberal MP Alexander Downer’s daughter Georgina Downer and the former Member for Mayo Rebekha Sharkie who was forced to resign last week after getting caught up in the dual citizenship saga.

A date for the by-election is yet to be set.
