Isobel Redmond

From Michael Owen of the Australian:
The troubled Liberal Party branch hopes its decision to install its first female leader will end the destabilising divisions that have dogged it in the lead-up to the next state election in March.

Reflecting how fractured the 22-member partyroom has become in recent weeks, Ms Redmond won the leadership on the second ballot rather than claiming an outright victory in the first three-way vote between herself, former deputy leader Vickie Chapman and former frontbencher Mitch Williams.

Ms Redmond ultimately won the day against Ms Chapman by 13 votes to nine.
