Federal Member for Mayo Rebekha Sharkie represents a regional electorate in South Australia that includes the Adelaide Hills, the Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island. She is the Centre Alliance spokesperson for Social Services, Ageing, Education, Agriculture & Rural Affairs, Housing, Family & Community Services, Indigenous Affairs, Arts, Sport, Women and Youth.
Rebekha is a politician of firsts. She was the first Nick Xenophon Team (now Centre Alliance) member to be elected to the House of Representatives; the first non-conservative politician to represent the once safe Liberal electorate of Mayo since it was created in 1984; and the first woman to represent her part of regional South Australia since Federation.
Rebekha won Mayo with a 17% swing in 2016 and has increased her two-party preferred margin by 2.23% in the recent 2019 election, taking into account the electoral redistribution in South Australia.
