The Electoral district of Narre Warren South is an electorate of the Victorian Legislative Assembly and contains the suburbs of Narre Warren South, and Cranbourne North. Also contains parts of Hallam, Hampton Park, Narre Warren, Berwick and Beaconsfield
The seat has only been in existence since the 2002 election. It is currently held by the Labor Party with a safe 12.6% margin, although it would usually be a more marginal seat as the swing at the previous election was 14%, roughly twice the state average.
Dale Wilson was the inaugural sitting member, but he was defeated by Tim Holding staffer Judith Graley in a preselection battle in early 2006. Graley then defeated Liberal candidate Michael Shepherdson at the 2006 election.
