NSW Labor head picks by-election candidate

AAP logoAAP 12/08/2016

NSW Labor leader Luke Foley has chosen academic Paul Scully as the party's candidate in the Wollongong by-election.

Mr Scully beat several hopefuls for preselection in the former seat of retired MP Noreen Hay after Mr Foley bypassed the party's usual rank-and-file preselection process.

"I'm taking charge of Labor's preselection for Wollongong and insisting that Paul Scully be the Labor candidate," Mr Foley told the Illawarra Mercury.
