NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has confirmed that, after an in depth international search, the particular person to lead an inquiry into why former deputy premier John Barilaro was chosen for a $500,000-a-year job created by former deputy premier John Barilaro, will be former deputy premier John Barilaro.
The function was initially awarded to an impeccably certified girl inside the public service, however the provide was later withdrawn after John Barilaro stated he needed the place.
In a media convention this morning, Perrottet stated it was essential that the particular person main the investigation had an intimate understanding of the problems. “John both established the New York role, and was successful in securing that role, so I don’t think there’s anyone more qualified to investigate this, frankly”.
Opposition MPs have strongly condemned the inquiry appointment, saying there’s a clear battle of curiosity. Perrottet says he’ll take their feedback on board and has requested John Barilaro to put together a report on any potential conflicts.
