The Gold Coast is poised to play a key role in deciding who will rule Queensland for the next four years

The LNP holds 10 of the 11 Gold Coast seats, with Gaven being the only Labor Party seat on the Glitter Strip

Both leaders have spent considerable time on the Gold Coast during the campaign to target the city’s fringe seats and make millions of dollars in campaign promises

There are six electorates where the incumbent member occupies the seat with a margin of less than 5%

Gaven is the most marginal on the Gold Coast and the third most marginal in the whole state Every party will probably have to win Gaven if they are to win the election

Labor hopes to snatch Bonney and Currumbin’s seats from the LNP and hope to have a chance at Burleigh

Both sides will also closely monitor Theodore’s North Gold Coast headquarters

Coomera is the Gold Coast’s other fringe headquarters, but the LNP should hang on to it

Held by LNP’s Sam O’Connor on a margin of just 17 percent His main rival in this election is ALP’s Ash Borg Amin Javanmard of the Greens has another chance at Bonney after racing in 2017 One Nation ( Michael Rix) and United Australia Party (David Bark) are also running candidates this time around Leana Marquet is running as independent

Owned by Michael Hart of TNL with 49 percent margin M Hart has been in the seat since 2012 but faces a long line of challengers this time around Labor has recruited high profile candidate Wayne « Rabbit » Bartholomew as candidate Georgie Batty (One Nation), Scott Wallace (Animal Justice Party) , Ingrid Weber (Legalize Cannabis QLD Party), Rachel Mebberson (Greens), Carlo Filingeri (United Australia Party) are also in the running

The Greens polled heavily in the 2017 election with 161% of the vote with the party preferring the ALP One Nation and the United Australia Party will address their preferences to the LNP

Hosted by Laura Gerber of the LNP, who won the seat in a by-election in March after Jann Stuckey retired

She holds the seat by a 33 percent margin Her main rival is Labor Party’s Kaylee Campradt, who has her second chance at the seat after also running in the March by-elections Fewer than 570 votes separate the LNP and the ALP in the by-election

The battle for Currumbin got even more interesting after Jann Stuckey’s husband entered the race as an Independent He expects to get a decent number of votes from the LNP and also directs his preferences towards the ‘ALP

The tightest seat on the Gold Coast, held by Labor’s Meaghan Scanlon by a margin of just 07 percent Ms Scanlon crossed the line in 2017 on the backs of Greens preferences, but will face a more large number of candidates this time

His main rival is Kirsten Jackson from the LNP Also present are Sharon Sewell (One Nation), Suzette Lukyen (Legalize Cannabis QLD Party), Reyna Drake (Civil Liberties & Motorists Party), Gary Beck (United Australia Party), Sally Spain (Greens)

The Greens are once again orienting their preferences towards Labor, while One Nation and UAP will prefer the NL to Labor

Held by Michael Crandon of the LNP on a margin of 35 percent M Crandon has occupied the seat since 2009 The seat has become more marginal with each election with the region as the region experiences significant population growth

ALP nominee is mental health nurse Chris Johnstone Also running: Lissy Gavranich for the Greens, Heath Gallagher (United Australia Party), She D’Montford (Informed Medical Options Party), Daryl Prout (Animal Justice Party), Kris Bourbon (independent), Tabita Wilkinson (One Nation)

One nation was polled very heavily in the 2017 election with over 20% of the vote, but a significant drop is expected this time around

Held by LNP’s Mark Boothman on a 37 percent M margin Boothman won the newly created seat in 2017 after taking Albert’s seat, which was later abolished

The Labor candidate is Tracey Bell who ran for Moncrieff’s seat in the 2019 federal election The Greens John Woodlock, Anita Holland (One Nation), Robert Marks (United Australia Party) and Gale Oxenford (independent) are also in the race

Another seat where One Nation polled very heavily in 2017 with 19% of the first preferential vote
