Victorian election 2022: Senior Liberal Party figures divided over plan to preference Greens ahead of Labor

Opposition Leader Matthew Guy leaves the Liberal Party election launch in Port Melbourne.

But the decision has infuriated some Liberal Party members, with one senior figure – who asked not to be named so they could discuss internal matters – labelling it “Trumpian bullshit”.

“I had many voters tell me that they normally voted Liberal, but couldn’t vote for Matthew, and my understanding is that there was some polling a year ago telling us that he was the biggest drag on our ticket,” he wrote.

“Matthew told members – including me directly – that if he lost this election he would be resigning from parliament quite quickly afterwards. He needs to do so now.”
