Three Libs to contest Frankston

THREE Liberals will contest preselection for the right to take on rebel independent Geoff Shaw in the Victorian seat of Frankston.

Frankston mayor Darrel Taylor, local policeman Michael Lamb and Frankston educated Sean Armistead all nominated to contest the seat, which Mr Shaw won for the Liberals with 52 per cent of the two-party preferred vote in 2010.

Mr Shaw resigned from the parliamentary Liberal Party last March and is seen by some as being responsible for the resignations of former Premier Ted Baillieu and Speaker Ken Smith.

Mr Smith had suggested he may contest the seat of Frankston, but announced on Friday he would not.
