Tony Abbott Warringah preselection result released by NSW Liberal Party

Former prime minister Tony Abbott will recontest Warringah for the 10th time.

Michael Regan, the popular Northern Beaches Council mayor who was elected in 2012 with 56.33 per cent of the vote, played down the idea that he would contest Mr Abbott’s blue ribbon Sydney seat of Warringah as an independent but he stopped short of ruling it out.

In pointed criticism of both sides of politics, he said the community was “fed up with the power plays and ego-driven games taking place in Canberra”.

“Our Parliament’s become a laughing stock and all of us deserve better,” he told Fairfax Media.

Friday’s vote has again exposed the deep rift between moderates and conservatives inside the Liberal Party.
