Marino thanks Mr Turnbull

Member for Forrest Nola Marino has thanked former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull for his dedicated service to Australia and the Liberal Party.

“Mr Turnbull has been a first-class Prime Minister,” Mrs Marino said.

“His achievements are long and varied, and he’ll be regarded as one of our best Prime Ministers. He’s supported significant development and investment in the South West during his time.

“I also thank him for appointing me as Chief Government Whip for the duration of his leadership.

“I thank Julie Bishop for her outstanding service as Minister for Foreign Affairs and Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party. Ms Bishop has been a leader for both men and women, particularly inspiring for younger Australians.”

Mrs Marino congratulated Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Deputy Liberal Leader Josh Frydenberg on being elected on Friday.

Mrs Marino has remained Chief Government Whip.

“I believe the Prime Minister will be great for the South West,” Mrs Marino said.

“We both started our political careers at the same time, we know each other well and I know Mr Morrison will make a fine Prime Minister.”
