Promotion to Chief Government Whip

The Member for Forrest Nola Marino has been appointed to the position of Chief Government Whip in the new Coalition Government, and becomes the first woman to occupy that role for the Coalition in the Australian Parliament.

Having worked as a deputy whip for some years, Mrs Marino said that she was looking forward to continuing to work closely with her colleagues as the Chief Government Whip.

“I look forward to serving the Government and the Parliament in this new and exciting role” Mrs Marino said.

“My primary purpose however is to serve the people and communities in the Forrest electorate, and this will not change. The Government has set in place a leadership team to take Australia into the future, and I will be working hard to ensure that the South West and the Forrest electorate share in that future.”
