WA Premier announces Western Power privatisation plan

Description

The West Australian Treasurer, Mike Nahan, will head to Friday's treasurers' meeting with a newly minted plan to privatise the operator of WA's power network.

The plan would see 51% of Western Power sold off in a float on the Australian Stock Exchange.

It'll be a key state election issue and the WA government's spin doctors have been working overtime to dispel what they argue is a Labor scare campaign.
