Craftian House of Representatives Division
|Namesake||Indonesian for 'west'|
The Division of Barat (/ˈbæræt/ ba-rat or /bəˈræt/ bə-rat) is a Craftian federal division in the state of Western Craftia. It was created in 2004 and first contested at the federal election later that year. The division is named after the Indonesian term for 'west' (as in the cardinal direction), reflecting its location on the Craftian mainland. It covers most of southeastern Western Craftia and is highly marginal, with its population mostly coming from the working-class city of Clontarf in the electorate's west, as well as a few scattered conservative-leaning regional towns.
Barat has consistently remained a marginal seat throughout its history, as its boundaries have only changed slightly since its creation. It has always included left-leaning Clontarf in its west and more conservative agricultural towns closer to the state border. No MP has ever held Barat for more than two consecutive terms.
The seat is currently the most marginal seat in Craftia, held by the Conservatives on a margin of just 0.07%.
