Liberal Leader Zed Seselja is hinting at very serious allegations:
Suspicions that the review into the public service was all about ACT Labor removing the chief planner have been confirmed by the former Chief Minister Jon Stanhope and it appears this type of advice from the Chief Planning Executive wont be welcome under Katy Gallaghers leadership, Opposition Leader Zed Seselja said today.
It has long been suspected that the review was nothing but a transparent attempt to get rid of a public servant who dared stand up to the Government. Jon Stanhopes comments in the Canberra Times yesterday lend weight to this conclusion. Zed said.
Unfortunately, this is how ACT Labor treats people who dare criticise the way they do things. Neil Savery had the courage to challenge the Government and say that the planning process was being compromised. The consequences of this are that Neil Savery is no longer the Chief Planner in the ACT.
