Chief Minister Gallagher has sent forth alarming news that she’s expanding the ACT Ministry to 9.
Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher, today introduced a bill into the Legislative Assembly that will, if passed, allow for up to nine ministers to be appointed as part of the ACT executive.
“This legislation is designed to meet the needs of our growing community by increasing the numbers of ministers to better serve the community whilst also allowing for improved management of ministerial workloads,” the Chief Minister said.
“Now is the time to act and to create greater flexibility for future governments and while this bill would allow for up to nine ministers, the appropriate number for appointment would be left to the Chief Minister of the day.”
Considering her Government has but 9 MLAs and precious chance of getting more one thinks we’re going to need a larger Legislative Assembly (we probably do, not so sold on 9 ministers for the ACT though).
