New South Wales Parliament: Women hold three out of four leadership position

Newly appointed opposition leader in the parliament of New South Wales Jodi McKay filled half of the position of MPs by females. She rearranges her existing ministry with half of the members are new and promoted. This is the first time in the history of New South Wales when in opposition party 50% are females.

McKay said that equality matter a lot of that’s why I selected all of these females on merit. Women are selected for three out of four positions for the first time in history.

MP Yasmin Catley is elected as the new second in command head of McKay. Adam Searle has maintained his position of leader in the upper house, while Penny Sharpe, one of the party’s most senior Left faction figures, has been given the second in command head role.

On Tuesday McKay said that this is the first time in the history of the labor party that three women are in a leadership position.

McKay’s new frontbench gives a difference to Berejiklian’s NSW bureau, where a lady makes up 21% of the front seat, holding 5 of 24 spots.

The previous pioneer Michael Daley, who ventured down from the administration following Labor’s race retreat in March, will remain on the backbench in the wake of declining a frontbench position offer from McKay.
