2001 Nedlands state by-election

A by-election for the seat of Nedlands in the Legislative Assembly of Western Australia was held on 9 June 2001. It was triggered by the resignation of Richard Court, the sitting Liberal member and a former premier, on 27 April 2001. The Liberal candidate at the by-election, Sue Walker, retained the seat with 53.4 percent of the two-candidate-preferred (2CP) vote, a negative swing of 1.5 points from the 2001 state election. The Greens made the final 2CP count for only the second time in their history.
