Who is Dominic Perrotett -Just announced the 46th Premier of NSW?

Today’s  Liberal Party room has elected a new Leader of the Parliamentary Liberal Party and consistent with Murdoch NEWS Corp and  Fairfax Nine Entertainment Groups predictions,.. made it quite emphatically with the new Premier securing 39 votes against 5  for the only other candidate for the leadership Rob Stokes.

His Deputy will be Stuart Ayres but it will not be know until tomorrow who the new leader of the national party will be followiing the shock resignation of the former Deputy Premier and Leader of the Parliamentary Nationals,..John Barilaro.

 

The NSW Liberal Party’s endorsement of the Hon. Dominic Perrotett to lead  the liberal  party and the State of NSW has already begun with  the new Premier being sworn in by the NSW Governor the hon. Margaret Beazley,..in a ceremony at  Government House today.

The Premier has committed to reopening NSW as we adjust to living with COVID-19.

 

*Who is Dominic Francis Perrottet?

*According to Wikepedia sources

He is an Australian politician who is currently serving as the 46th Premier of New South Wales and Leader of the New South Wales Liberal Party. He assumed office on 5 October 2021 following the resignation of Gladys Berejiklian. He previously served as Treasurer and deputy leader of the New South Wales division of the Liberal Party from January 2017 to October 2021 and is a member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly representing the seat of Epping since 2019. Previously, he represented Castle Hill from 2011 to 2015 and Hawkesbury from 2015 to 2019.

Perrottet previously served as Minister for Industrial Relations in the first Berejiklian ministry and as Minister for Finance, Services and Property in the first and second Baird ministries.

As Treasurer, Perrottet oversaw proposed reforms which may replace once-off, tiered upfront stamp duties with perpetual annual land taxes. Should these reforms be legislated, the land tax system may have the potential to eliminate current duty concessions and exemptions which offer limited assistance to home buyers with no prior property ownership. When coalesced with continual rate of sustained property price rises in the Sydney Metropolitan area and more recently in certain NSW Regional centres, first time home ownership may perpetually become prohibitive.

 

The NSW state community now rightfully expect the government to resume the job they  were elected to do and ensure that we recover from the pandemic and regain our freedom.
