Australian Greens announce new shadow ministries for real opposition

The Australian Greens MPs

The Australian Greens have today announced updated portfolios, as decided at Monday’s meeting of the Australian Greens Party Room.

“Someone needs to stand up against Scott Morrison’s regime of failed trickle-down economics, or we’ll end up living in a dog eat dog society like Trump’s America,” Opposition Leader Senator Di Natale said.

“Sadly, the other parties have bought into the Prime Minister’s reckless plan, and Labor’s nowhere to be seen. Yesterday shows that the Government’s benches aren’t nearly big enough for the number of politicians trying to enact his agenda.

“Scott Morrison’s selfish vision for our country is not the Australia I know, and it’s not the Australia the Greens will accept.

“That’s why I’m proud to announce the roles held by the Australian Greens team, who will be offering fearless and real opposition to Scott Morrison’s selfish vision for Australia.”
