Leader of The Nationals David Littleproud has congratulated Senator Jacinta Nampijinpa Price on her appointment as Shadow Minister for Indigenous Australians.
Mr Littleproud said Senator Price was a champion of Indigenous causes and a fierce advocate for improving the lives of Indigenous communities and families, particularly women and children.
“I welcome today’s announcement and I know Senator Price will make an enormous contribution in her important new role,” Mr Littleproud said.
“Senator Price has the courage, conviction and lived experience to shine a lens on the challenges Indigenous communities are facing.
“Senator Price’s promotion shows the great depth and talent in the 21-strong Nationals party room and the strength of diversity in our Shadow Ministry representation.
“The Nationals are proud to now have almost 60 per cent female representation in our seven Shadow Cabinet positions and 50 per cent across our broader 12 Shadow Ministry roles.
“We are bringing common sense to Canberra with the diversity of lived experience from our party room’s deep understanding of the regional, rural and remote communities we represent.”
