Yesterday the LNP Party Room unanimously elected Jarrod Bleijie as Deputy Leader of the Opposition.
Mr Bleijie will also take on the portfolio responsibilities of Shadow Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning, Shadow Minister for Olympic and Paralympic Infrastructure and Jobs as well as Shadow Minister for Industrial Relations.
I have appointed Fiona Simpson as Shadow Minister for Finance and Better Regulation with a goal to driving systemic change for businesses to prosper. Ms Simpson will continue in her role as Shadow Minister for Integrity in Government.
I have also appointed Andrew Powell as Manager of Opposition Business.
Trevor Watts will assume the role of Shadow Cabinet Secretary.
Mark Boothman will be Opposition Whip.
Laura Gerber will be Deputy Opposition Whip.
I’d like to extend my congratulations to all members of our team who have taken on new roles as we work together to hold an aging third-term government to account and chart a genuine alternate vision the people of Queensland deserve.
