Labor’s Kristy McBain has claimed victory to win the tight Eden-Monaro by-election battle.

She beat Liberal candidate rival Fiona Kotvojs, who was pipped at the last election by Labor’s Mike Kelly, who has retired due to health issues.

“I’m very pleased and honoured to be the next member for Eden-Monaro,” she said on July 5.
