Media Statement - Gladys Berejiklian

Today is a sad day for NSW.

Gladys Berejiklian has been the leader we needed when it has mattered the most.

Through floods, bushfires and now a pandemic, Gladys has led NSW through thick and thin.

I am saddened to lose a mentor, friend and colleague.

Gladys guided me through my election to Parliament. I am enormously grateful for her support, friendship and leadership. It has been a privilege to work under her.

I believe this is a tragic and unfair outcome for one of Australia’s most respected and brilliant leaders.

The NSW Liberal Party will determine a new leader in due course.

I am sure I speak for many people in our community in saying ‘Thank you Gladys’.
