7NEWS State Political Editor Amelia Brace puts hard questions to NSW Premier and Opposition Leader in first TV NSW election debate of the 2023 campaign
Dominic Perrottet and Chris Minns battle it out for your vote ahead of March 25 poll
7NEWS State Political Editor Amelia Brace has taken the hard questions up to the two men who want to take control of NSW when the state votes on March 25, in an exclusive showdown between Premier Dominic Perrottet and Opposition Leader Chris Minns at the network’s Martin Place studios, and broadcast live on Channel 7 and 7plus today.
On International Women’s Day, Brace and 7NEWS presenter Angela Cox were at the helm of Seven’s live leaders’ NSW Election debate where Perrottet and Minns made a direct pitch for power.
In a respectful and engaging hour-long exchange, Brace was able to draw Dominic Perrottet on why voters should return his NSW Liberal Government to office after 12 years; and tested Labor leader Chris Minns on his plans to provide alternate policies for a state facing spiraling cost of living pressures and public service challenges.
Key commitments from both leaders included reducing bureaucratic salaries, while both men were challenged by Brace for purporting to support public education but sending their own children to private schools.
Perrottet turned the torch on Labor’s ‘black hole’ on infrastructure spending, while Minns said the government promise of $50 million in extra project funding would take a high toll on the NSW economy and debt levels.
