Incoming New South Wales Premier Dominic Perrottet says his “broad array of experience” in cabinet has left him well prepared to continue the “great work” of his predecessors.

The 39-year-old is set to become the state’s youngest leader after his candidacy was confirmed at a leadership ballot on Tuesday morning.

Mr Perrottet insists his age should not be a barrier in serving his beloved state.

“I don’t think age should be a barrier, an impediment to being able to serve in public life,” he told Sky News Australia.

“I’ve had a great opportunity to serve with two great premiers in Mike Baird as his finance minister and Gladys Berejiklian as her treasurer and I think that it has given me a broad array of experience and understanding of government.

“But ultimately, I’m passionate about the state and I think I have the opportunity, with a very good team around me, to continue the great work of the last three premiers in making sure that NSW goes strongly into the future.”
