Dominic Perrottet is the new NSW premier

Dominic Perrottet won the ballot for the leadership of the NSW Liberal Party and has been sworn in as the state’s 46th Premier.
Mr Perrottet received 39 votes, while Planning Minister Rob Stokes only nabbed five, but now the challenges lie ahead.
The most pressing questions relate to whether there will be any changes to NSW’s pathway out of lockdown and the date stay-at-home orders will be lifted.

In his official statement , this is what Perrottet had to say:

“Unexpected change can bring uncertainty and sometimes that can feel unsettling. But as hard as it may be, we all have a duty to keep going. Today begins a new chapter in the story of NSW. One that we will all write together”.

“The first thing I want to do is acknowledge and pay tribute to my predecessor Gladys Berejiklian, whose strong and steady leadership has seen us through so many challenges”.

“Being Premier is a great honour – but I want to be clear that the job I have committed to today is not just to lead NSW, but to serve the people of our State.

Today is not about us, sitting in Macquarie Street, it’s about the 8 million people who call our great State home”.

“You don’t get to choose the times in which you live – and this is one of the most challenging times the people of our state have ever faced”.

Up until now, all of our Liberal leaders have been infrastructure premiers – building roads, rail, schools and hospitals for communities right across our State.

“But I’ll also be a family premier – focusing on how we can make life better for working families – living the Liberal values of opportunity, aspiration and hard work”.
