Adam Brooks’ replacement in Tasmania’s House of Assembly should be known on February 25.
Tasmania’s Electoral Commissioner Andrew Hawkey said a recount would be conducted to fill the vacancy caused by Mr Brooks’ resignation as a Liberal member for Braddon.
He said a public notice would appear in the Advocate newspaper on February 15, inviting all Braddon candidates, who were not elected at 2018 election, to nominate to contest the recount.
“The Tasmanian Electoral Commission will also write to those candidates inviting them to nominate for the recount,” Mr Hawkey said.
“Nominations must be received by 12 noon on Monday 25 February 2019.”
Mr Hawkey said all ballot papers of people who had voted for Mr Brooks would be counted.
“We will get staff together and hopefully we will know the result on Monday night,” he said.
Former Liberal Braddon member Joan Rylah has announced she will nominate.
It is not known if fellow Liberal candidate Felix Ellis will put his name forward.
