Sky News Political Editor Andrew Clennell says he thinks the new Premier of NSW Dominic Perrottet can do a “pretty solid job” with the experience he has.
On Tuesday, Dominic Perrottet was officially sworn in as the 46th Premier of New South Wales, replacing Gladys Berejiklian after her resignation last Friday.
“I just think, as John Howard’s said, he (Perrottet) is very intelligent, he’s more a man of the people than he comes across, as he comes across as a bit awkward and nerdy,” Mr Clennell told Sky News host Peta Credlin.
“He’s going to compare unfavourably to Gladys Berejiklian initially because she was in the role for four years and had really grown.
“If you compare Dominic Perrottet starting now to when Gladys Berejiklian was starting as premier, to be frank, I don’t see a hell of a lot of difference.
“But I think he’s probably the solid choice and the best choice for the New South Wales Liberal Party and they must think so too.”
