Public Statement on the election of Gladys Berejiklian as the 45th Premier of NSW 

I welcome the uncontested election of Gladys Berejiklian as Leader of the Liberal Party and thus Premier of NSW.

I have known Ms Berejiklian since she entered Parliament and became my local member when I lived in her electorate. She is a well respected local member who has managed her ministerial portfolios with industry and competence.  

While a member of the Armenian Church, she has been a strong supporter of Anglican ministry and never missed a service marking the commencement of ministry of new Anglican rectors in her electorate.

All our Anglican churches pray for those who govern us, and as we have prayed for Mike Baird we shall now pray for Gladys Berejiklian that she might exercise this new responsibility with wisdom and grace, for the good of all citizens and the glory of God.

Archbishop Glenn Davies
