A week in Politics (16/1/17)

It was one week ago today that Sussan Ley stepped aside as Federal Health Minister before stepping down as Minister later in the week.

Politically the local area has had a golden run when it comes to Politics as its State and Federal MPs have been on the front bench of the Baird and Turnbull Governments respectively for several years.

Late last year it started to come crashing down as the Nationals lost the seat of Orange and Adrian Piccoli resigned as deputy leader of the Nationals in response but has remained as Education Minister.

If Adrian Piccoli resigns or is replaced as Education Minister then the local area will not have any Ministers in office for the first time in a long time.

DNS is currently polling locals to see if the Liberals will lose Farrer over what has happened with Sussan Ley and we will conduct a poll to see if the National Party will retain Murray in the next NSW Election sometime in the near future.

Stay tuned.
