QUEENSLAND’s new shadow cabinet has been named.

Liberal National Party leader Deb Frecklington said she had pushed the reset button.

“Today, I take the first step by unveiling our Shadow Cabinet to keep Labor to account and that will work their butts off to earn back the trust of Queenslanders,” Ms Frecklington said.

“It is a mix of experience and new faces.

“I have given them all one message – earn it. Earn the trust of Queenslanders. Earn the respect of Queenslanders.

“I have communicated to my new team, my first priority is to unite Queensland with a team that represents all of Queensland.

“We need to end Labor’s division between South East Queensland and the rest of the state.  

“The other priorities are tackling ICE, creating jobs and busting congestion by building more infrastructure, delivering better services and taking action on the cost of living.

“This is the team that will hold the Palaszczuk Government to account and earn back the trust and respect of Queenslanders.”  

Former LNP leader Tim Nicholls is not in the shadow ministry. Instead he has been appointed chair of Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Commission.
