The National Party of Australia has been given another seat in cabinet after the coalition struck a deal on the plan for a net zero target by 2050 on Sunday. While the details of the deal were initially kept private, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Monday that Nationals MP and Minister for Resources and Water Keith Pitt will be elevated back into cabinet.
Federal Resources Minister Keith Pitt has been elevated to cabinet after the Nationals signed up to a net zero emissions target by 2050 in a deal with the Prime Minister.
Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce says the party will not rush a decision on backing more action on climate change ahead of a major conference in Glasgow.
What people are saying?
TezSez “That’s a decision for the Prime Minister,”. Bullshit. Keith Pitt becomes a cabinet minister, not as a result of their beloved merit principle, but because it’s the price we pay so the Nats agree to do what they inevitably would have to do.
Author Julie Wright No, there has been no “deal” yet Channel 9. And Joyce declared any said deal will be SECRET. 25 million Australians demand to know how much the “deal” is going to cost them in propping up the dying coal industry. Because it’s not going to the farmers or regional towns.
