Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner

Statement From Chief Minister

Victor P Taffa

Today I have advised Ken Vowles that he has been dismissed from the Cabinet for breaking Cabinet confidentiality, Chief Minister Michael Gunner said.

Caucus has also dismissed Ken Vowles, Jeff Collins and Scott McConnell from the Caucus.

Ken Vowles, Jeff Collins and Scott McConnell were dismissed for breaking the Caucus values and standards signed up to at the beginning of our term.

 

“When the Territory Labor Government was elected in 2016, we promised to put Territorians first by delivering jobs, putting kids at the centre of government and restoring trust.” Chief Minister Michael Gunner said.

Unity of purpose is vital to Government achieving these aims.

Territorians expect and deserve Government to be solely focussed on their concerns and making their lives better.

Gunner Government has made these decisions because now more than ever the Territory cannot afford distractions from the challenging tasks at hand to deliver jobs, to repair the budget, to deliver for Territorians in the bush and to create a brighter future for all Territorians.

  • Ken Vowles is the Member for Johnston,
