A year from now, Canberrans will decide who will represent them in the Legislative Assembly for the following four years. It will be an election unlike any since the ACT became self-governing in 1989. The Assembly is about to expand dramatically in size: from 17 members to 25, and from three electorates to five. One potential benefit will be that MLAs, representing smaller areas, will be more local in their focus; each of this city's districts will have its Assembly champions.
