The leader of the opposition has ruled out tabling a motion of no-confidence ahead of the first sitting of Tasmania’s new parliament on Tuesday.

The House of Assembly, complete with a minority Liberal government, the Jacqui Lambie Network and Independent MPs, will convene in Hobart on May 14.


“Tasmanians have elected a parliament that’s going to be really challenging for the Premier to manage,” Labor leader Dean Winter said.

“We want to make sure, for the business community and for workers, that they understand there is certainty going forward.”

“But what I’ve been clear about since I became leader is that the Labor Party stands for jobs and we want to make sure we’re providing the certainty for jobs in the parliament.”

Member for Lyons Guy Barnett has welcomed Winter’s collaborative approach.

“There was a lot of shenanigans in the past parliament,” he said.

“Stunt after stunt. Tasmanians don’t want that.”


“We look forward to all members of parliament following that approach.”
