On 20 May 2019, Phelps conceded defeat in the 2019 federal election to the Liberal candidate Dave Sharma.

In October 2019 she was named winner of the Public Policy category in The Australian Financial Review's 100 Women of Influence awards in recognition of her efforts in advocating for asylum-seeker health and lobbying Parliament for the Medevac law.


On 16 September 2018, Phelps announced she would run as an independent candidate in the 2018 Wentworth by-election, occasioned by the resignation from Parliament of Malcolm Turnbull following his removal as Prime Minister. She was elected with a majority of 1,851 votes (1.2 points in two-party-preferred terms), constituting a 19-point swing in what had been a safe Liberal seat, and was the first independent candidate to win the federal seat of Wentworth. However, on 20 May 2019, she was defeated in the 2019 federal election by the Liberal candidate Dave Sharma.

Phelps ran as an independent candidate in the 2018 Wentworth by-election. When announcing her campaign, she urged voters to "put the Liberals last". She later published how-to-vote cards giving the Liberals a higher preference than Labor. Phelps became a prominent candidate in the by-election and has stated that her campaign cost around $300,000. Reports suggested that, if Phelps won, she might provide confidence and supply to the government.

Phelps was sworn in as a member of parliament on 26 November 2018. Upon arriving in Parliament, she proposed amendments to government legislation which gave greater authority to doctors to allow the medical evacuation of asylum seekers to Australia from Nauru and Manus Island. The government, which did not have a majority on the floor of either the House of Representatives or Senate, opposed the amendments. Phelps' amendments were able to pass the parliament with the support of the Labor Party, Greens and most of the other crossbenchers in the House. Human rights advocates hailed the legislation, with one reflecting on its passage a "tipping point as a country", in relation to the treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.


Phelps was elected to the Council of the City of Sydney on 10 September 2016 as a member of the Clover Moore Independents Team, and was then appointed as Deputy Lord Mayor of the Council. She resigned as Deputy on 26 June 2017 and is now an independent politician.
