‘We need to know what’s happened here’: State Govt slammed over Water Corp secrecy

The Opposition has slammed the State Government for refusing to reveal why the chair of Water Corporation has resigned – just weeks after signing a new three year contract.

Michael Hollett resigned last week citing business and family interests and Water Minister Dave Kelly says he can’t provide any further detail due to legal advice.

Liberal Party spokesman on government accountability Tjorn Sibma told Gareth Parker on Mornings it doesn’t add up.

“This again is another incident where a government minister has failed to live up to this openness, transparency and accountability agenda that Mark McGowan proposed very, very early on in this term of government,” he said.

“This is another time where they’ve failed to live up to it. I’m concerned about the incompetence of the government’s management of the public sector.”
