The race to replace departing Rockliff Government Minister Jacquie Petrusma in the seat of Franklin is shaping up.

Former Huon Valley Mayor Bec Enders will contest the recount against Dean Young.

Ms Enders came in next-best on the Liberal ticket in last year's election, roughly 90 votes ahead of Mr Young. 

Writs will also issue for the Pembroke byelection on Wednesday to replace Labor's Jo Siejka.

Clarence Alderman James Walker is the only declared candidate so far ahead of the nominations deadline on August 11.
