STATEMENT FROM THE HON BERNIE RIPOLL MP ON APPOINTMENT TO SHADOW MINISTRY

I am honoured to be appointed Shadow Minister for Financial Services and Superannuation, Shadow Minister for Sport and Shadow Minister Assisting the Leader for Small Business.

I want to thank my caucus colleagues for electing me to the Shadow Ministry, as well as the Leader of the Opposition, Bill Shorten, for entrusting me with the privilege of representing such significant portfolios.

I am enthusiastic to serve and utilise the experience I have gained through the past 15 years as a member of the House of Representatives, including as Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer and Parliamentary Secretary for Small Business.

The portfolios I represent play a major part in the everyday lives of the Australian public and I look forward to not just holding the Abbott Government to account, but also to playing a constructive role in presenting a credible alternative to the Coalition.
