    • Refreshed Cabinet builds on talent, experience and stability
    • Two new Ministers ensure strong voices from the suburbs and the regions
    • Governor of Western Australia to officially swear in new Ministers and Parliamentary Secretaries at Government House

    Premier Mark McGowan has unveiled his renewed Cabinet team - which builds on the Government's strength, stability, and experience - with the focus and energy to deliver for Western Australians.

     

    The Cabinet includes two new Ministers: Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton and South-West region MLC Jackie Jarvis.

     

    Former teacher Sabine Winton will be Minister responsible for Child Protection, Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence, Community Services, and the new portfolio of Early Childhood Education - highlighting its importance as a dedicated portfolio.

     

    Farmer and businesswoman Jackie Jarvis will be Minister responsible for Agriculture and Food, Forestry, and Small Business.

     

    The two new Ministers build on previous changes to the Cabinet team, resulting in a total of seven new Ministers since the 2021 State election.

     

    Roger Cook adds the Hydrogen Industry portfolio to his responsibilities.

     

    After nearly 10 years in the Education portfolio - including six years as Minister for Education and Training - Sue Ellery will now take on the portfolios of Finance, Commerce, and Women's Interests.

     

    Tony Buti will take on the Education portfolio, in addition to Aboriginal Affairs, and Citizenship and Multicultural Interests.

     

    Simone McGurk takes on the portfolios of Training, Water, and Youth.

     

    Don Punch adds Regional Development to Disability Services, Fisheries, and Seniors and Ageing.

     

    Reece Whitby adds the Racing and Gaming portfolio to Environment and Climate Action.

     

    The evolution of the digital economy as an economic enabler will see Stephen Dawson appointed as Minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy, along with Emergency Services, Medical Research, and Volunteering.

     

    The new Parliamentary Secretaries will be Jodie Hanns, Dr Jagadish (Jags) Krishnan, Meredith Hammat, Pierre Yang, and Hannah Beazley.

     

    The new Ministers and Parliamentary Secretaries will be officially sworn in by the Governor of Western Australia at a ceremony at Government House later today.

     

    Comments attributed to Premier Mark McGowan:

     

    "These changes are about building on the strength, stability, experience, and hard work of this Government, ensuring we continue to be focussed on delivering for Western Australians.

     

    "My team is committed to doing what matters to Western Australians - delivering a strong and stable economy, investing in training and health, and tackling cost of living and climate change.

     

    "Being in Cabinet is a privilege that requires hard work, energy and enthusiasm, dedication, and diplomacy - and I am confident that the new team will deliver on our plan to stand up for every Western Australian and ensure WA continues to be the strongest, most successful and fairest State in the nation, if not the world."
