Member for Hammond Adrian Pederick has been pre selected to run for the Murray Mallee seat once again, the MP going for his fourth term at the 2018 state election.

Mr Pederick says he hopes the fact that no one challenged his selection means his party has total faith in the job he's doing for his consituents.

"I'm very honoured to have the faith of the Liberal party members in the new boundaries of Hammond who are the ones who could make that decision."

"I just want to keep on doing the job and hopefully gain government next year."

The boundary changes means that Mr Pederick will lose some constituents from the south coast of his electorate but he will gain residents from the Murray Mallee region.

"It will bring to an end my representation at Goolwa and Currency Creek which is quite sad because I've enjoyed and am still enjoying looking after Goolwa and Currency Creek, it's a great little spot. There's about 6500 voters that will go from there that will go into the newly redrawn seat of Finniss."

"I'll pick up quite a big patch of mainly Schubert and Some of Chafey, so I'll pick up all the way into the town of Tungkillo, the town of Palmer and Mannum, Cambrai and also Walkers Flat so it'll be quite a significant change."

"The Mallee will also come back in so all the way out through Lameroo and Pineroo and Karoonda will come back into Hammond after only being out one term."
