"I am humbled that the people of NSW have put their trust in us. And the work starts right away," NSW Premier Chris Minns said.

"NSW has voted for a fresh start for NSW, and to put people at the heart of government - to invest in the human capital that runs our essential services.

"There's not a moment to lose in delivering on our plans, particularly for essential workers and essential services in health and education.

"We know there are challenges ahead and accept our responsibility to meet them.

"My message to people of this state is that we will govern for all of NSW. That's what people expect and deserve."

NSW Deputy Premier Prue Car said: "The people of NSW have provided a mandate for change and a fresh start.

"This Government has committed to a significant program of investment in education and health, repairing essential services, helping with the cost of living, improving housing and rental supply and affordability, and boosting local manufacturing, jobs and skills. Energy security is also an immediate priority.

"It is top of our agenda to invest in our education system for current and future generations and start negotiations on public sector wages as we fulfill our commitment to better remunerate our essential workers," she said.
