Candidates for Barker in the Federal Election who have accepted an invitation to attend are sitting Liberal member, Tony Pasin; James Stacey, (Nick Xenophon Team); Yvonne Zeppel (Family First Party); and Mat O’Brien, (ALP). The Greens will also field a candidate in Barker, but they have not yet released the candidate’s name.
