Three candidates, one seat. The Whitlam Federal election 2019.


Zoe Brain, 15, a presenter and youth reporter at ZgenFM reached out to local candidates in the upcoming Federal election for the seat of Whitlam to ask them questions relevant to people under the age of 25.

Three candidates responded in time and she went out to speak to them on the campaign trail. She was careful to maintain a balance and so asked each candidate the same questions covering the environment, youth mental health and the candidate’s own taste in music.

You can listen to the interviews below or tune into 92.5 FM at 10am or 3pm each day until the election result is announced.

Listen to all three interviews here:
