Natasha Fyles announces cabinet reshuffle in the Northern Territory: Brent Potter and Joel Bowden appointed to roles
Northern Territory Chief Minister Natasha Fyles has unveiled her new cabinet: two former ministers have been demoted, and two new faces have joined the frontbench.
This reshuffle is the first since Ms. Fyles took over from former Chief Minister Michael Gunner last year, and it provides voters with an opportunity to see the team she is likely to lead in the Northern Territory election in 2024.
The two former ministers who will now take their seats on the backbench are former Minister for Environment and Education, Lauren Moss, and former Minister for Small Business, Paul Kirby.
Ms. Moss had been a cabinet member since the Labor Party was elected to the Northern Territory government in 2016.
The two politicians who have been promoted are former AFL player and MLA for Johnston, Joel Bowden, and MLA for Fannie Bay, Brent Potter, who won his seat in a tight local by-election in 2022.
Mr. Potter has been appointed as the new Minister for Police in the Northern Territory, while Kate Worden, who previously held the position, has now moved to the environment portfolio.
