NORTHERN TERRITORY ELECTION - SATURDAY, 27 AUGUST 2016

I have spoken to Michael Gunner tonight to congratulate him and NT Labor on an extraordinary victory.

I have spoken to Michael Gunner tonight to congratulate him and NT Labor on an extraordinary victory. 

This is an outstanding result for Michael, his Labor team and for the people of the Northern Territory. 

Territorians have punished the CLP for four years of scandal and controversy, and rewarded Labor for working hard and listening to people. 

Michael listened to Territorians and offered a positive plan for creating jobs, investing in people, and restoring trust and integrity in government.   

Territorians have responded to Labor’s plan, making the CLP Government the first one-term government in the Territory’s history. 

Territorians sent a clear message to the Turnbull Government at the federal election, electing Labor members to three of the four representative positions. They have sent another strong message to the Liberals tonight. 

I visited the Territory twice during the NT election campaign and it was clear locals were ready for change. 

Territorians have rejected a government that focused on itself, and voted for a government that will prioritise jobs, healthcare and education. 

Michael is a decent man and a strong leader. He will lead a government of unity, stability and integrity. 

I look forward to working with Michael and the new Northern Territory Government.
