Radio and TV host Basil Zempilas has been elected the new Lord Mayor of Perth.
It was a tightly-fought race between the media personality and former journalist Di Bain, with the pair separated by just a few hundred votes.
Mr Zempilas received 1,855 votes, or 29.44 per cent of the vote, compared to Ms Bain’s 1,571 and 24.94 per cent.
The pair were followed by Brodie McCulloch, Mark Gibson, Sandy Anghie, Bruce Reynolds and Tim Schwass.
The new Mayor and councillors will be sworn-in at a ceremony at Government House on Monday afternoon.
The election will see the first council installed since the $7.2m City of Perth inquiry.
The council has been run for more than two years by commissioners after the Local Government Minister suspended the existing administration in March 2018, and launched an inquiry into the City.
The two-year-long investigation led to an explosive 2,000 page report, which found “systemic failings” in the “poorly governed and dysfunctional” council and administration.
More to come.
