Legislative Council Presidency is a privilege and an honour

Tasmanian Labor

I’m extremely honoured to have today been voted in as the President of the Tasmanian Legislative Council.

I made the decision to nominate for this important role after careful consideration and based on advice.

I intend to treat the role with the dignity that it requires and deserves.

From the outset I want to make it clear that I will remain a member of the Labor Caucus.

I will also reserve my right to vote on matters according to my Labor values at times when a casting vote is required and respect the critical role of the Legislative Council.

I deeply respect the role of President and I am gratified and thankful that my Upper House colleagues have placed their faith and trust in me.

Craig Farrell MLC

President of the Legislative Council
