Daley takes over as NSW Labor leader
MICHAEL Daley has become the new leader of the NSW Labor Party after defeating rival Chris Minns in a party room ballot.
The former corporate lawyer attracted crossbench support to take over the role vacated by disgraced Auburn MP Luke Foley, who resigned after being accused of putting his hand inside ABC journalist Ashleigh Raper’s underpants at a 2016 Christmas party. Mr Foley denies the allegations.
Mr Daley said he felt confident about being able to win back women.
“I am a loving husband, I have been with my wife for 20 years, and I have two daughters with whom I have a terrific relationship. But actions speak louder than words,” he said.
