Crossbench commitment will provide for stable government
27th March 2023
In line with statements I made before Saturday’s election, I’ve joined my independent colleagues Alex Greenwich (Sydney) and Dr Joe McGirr (Wagga Wagga) to give the Minns Labor team an agreement for what’s known as ‘supply and confidence’.
Because Labor does not yet have an official majority (counting is continuing in 8 seats), this allows Chris Minns to assure the Governor as early as tomorrow that they can form government even without the completion of counting.
It’s an important step to allow the machinery of this new government to get under way as soon as possible.
