The state of Queensland is preparing for a new leadership regime, after the sensational resignation of Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk over the weekend.
The last remaining state leader from that weird period of time where everything went into shut down, announced yesterday that she would be stepping aside from the job after almost 9 years in power.
After an avalanche of negative opinion polls many had suspected a resignation was on the cards, but few expected an announcement as sudden as yesterdays.
The vacuum at the top of the Labor Party in Queensland will now see powerbrokers implement the highly successful Wests Tigers leadership system.
Introduced by the high flying merger club, the model replaces the traditional captain and vice captain set up, and anoints up to 5 different co-captains.
It was brought in at the beginning of last year by the team who had the illustrious honour of winning the Wooden Spoon.
However, in this case, the Labor Party will only introduce three co-premiers.
The co-premiers of the state will be Steven Miles (the current Deputy Premier), Cameron Dick (the current Treasurer) and Shannon Fenitman (Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Minister for Women and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence).
It’s unknown how exactly the new set up will function, but it’s believed Steven Miles will be in charge of talking to the ref.
More to come.
