The change is the first major announcement of the state’s neoliberal leader David Chrisafuli after the last defeat of the opposition in the election month.
Newly appointed Rep. David Janitsky will take charge of Shadow Cabinet and Rose Bates is granted health.
Mrs. Frecklington retains a seat in the Cabinet and will be responsible for water, dam building, regional development, and industrialization, while her former deputy Tim Mander moves from shadow treasurer to housing and public works as well as sports and racing.
Former party leader Tim Nichols will take over as attorney general in the shadows and another former president, John Paul Langbroek, will be responsible for the elderly, disabled communities and services as well as multiculturalism and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander partnerships.
Chrisafuli said his government is focusing heavily on the economy, which he insists will be the main electoral issue in the next state elections in four years..
“When I became the leader of the opposition, I said that I would assemble a team of some of the best economic minds in Parliament,” he said Sunday.
« The next elections will take place on the economy, and for this reason I have separated the economic arms to create both the fiscal and treasury portfolios..
Jarrod Beligy will assume responsibility for finance and retain his role as Shadow Minister for Industrial Relations.
Mr. Chrisafuli said this shared focus on the state’s portfolio « will chart a path toward good economic opportunities for Queensland families and also to hold the government accountable for its spending. ».
He said: « A government integrity portfolio, charged with holding the current government accountable, will also be presented. ».
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Anastasia Palashchuk appointed the youngest female minister in the state’s history and removed her deputy from her pivotal health role in changing her cabinet.
In a move echoed by the opposition, the Queensland government has moved to focus more on the economy and job creation as it charts a path out of the recession caused by the Coronavirus and high unemployment.
Stephen Miles will now assume the position of Secretary of State for Development, with Ms. Palaszczuk announcing that she will need « all hands on deck » to support the nation’s financial recovery.
Mr. Miles told reporters that he « felt a little crying » when he reported the news to Chief Health Officer Dr. Janet Young about his change of role after working side by side during the coronavirus chaos.. .
« But her opinion is that we are in control of the virus, so she has been supporting me to play a greater role in the economic response, ».
Former Attorney General Yvette Dath will be sworn in as the new Secretary of Health, while Gold Coast hinterland MP Megan Scanlon has been promoted to cabinet after winning state elections.
Ms Scanlon smashed the National Liberal Party stronghold over Gavin voters in 2017 by a narrow margin and her success was deemed crucial in the attempt to reelect the current government.
Her resounding win helped deliver a mutually favorite 7. 6 percent dealt a heavy blow to the Liberal Party’s hopes of overthrowing the government.
« Nearly 40 percent of Queensland’s population is under the age of 30, so it’s a great honor to be the youngest minister in Queensland’s history, » Scanlon said.. .
“I will make sure to continue defending not only my generation but for future generations.
To be joined by new recruits Leanne Linard, Nudgee MP and Victor Stewart in Townsville.
