NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet has been voted leader of the NSW Liberal Party and Premier of NSW in a contest against Planning Minister Rob Stokes.
Perrottet won the ballot 39 – 5. Jobs Minister Stuart Ayres has been confirmed as deputy leader.
I have mixed feelings about Perrottet.
On the one hand, Perrottet is behind the push to scrap stamp duties in NSW for land taxes – a brave reform that would greatly improve efficiency and equity.
On the other hand, Perrottet opposed NSW going into lockdown at the beginning of this outbreak and is a card carrying cheerleader of mass immigration.
I’d be interested in NSW readers’ views about Perrottet.
