“From a oldest life members to a newest of Labor recruits, to a trade kinship members — this competition has energised a movement,” Ms McKay said.
“I would also like to appreciate my colleagues for their support and their continued support and counsel.
“We have a fanciful group of MPs and no matter how any of us voted, we find common purpose in a values and a quarrel to win government.” Mr Minns congratulated Ms McKay on her victory.
“I’ve seen her adult tighten over a past month and her debating skills, poise of process and knowledge are what NSW Labor needs to win,” Mr Minns said.
“My pursuit now is to work with her to see a Labor Government in NSW in 2023 and be a constant member of her joined team.”
Mr Minns and Ms McKay are both from a Labor right faction.
Ms McKay has highlighted her “record of station adult to absolute and vested interests” and says she can kick Premier Gladys Berejiklian during a 2023 poll.
