Financial services ministry gets shake up

The ascension of Scott Morrison to the top seat has triggered a series of changes to cabinet.

Kelly O’Dwyer, formerly minister for financial services and revenue, will step into the Minister for Jobs and Industrial Relations role, while staying on as Minister for Women. Zed Seselja nabbed the Assistant Minister for Treasury and Finance role.

Mr Seselja is one of several pro-Dutton politicians to take up a role in Mr Morrison’s cabinet, having told Fairfax Media last week that Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton could “connect with people in large parts of Australia”.

Josh Frydenberg will become Treasurer and Stuart Robert will replace Michael Sukkar as Assistant Treasurer.

Mathias Cormann will continue as Minister for Finance and the Public Service.

Mr Morrison described the new ministry as a “next-generation Coalition team” tasked with keeping the economy strong and Australians safe.
