SAS Group News

By Malcolm Cole
SAS Group Director of Media and Communications

The sad affairs surrounding the Australian Cricket Team in South Africa have consumed more than enough air time and column centimetres in recent days, and most Australians are probably ready to move on. However, before we do, it’s worth reflecting on the communications efforts of Cricket Australia in the midst of the crisis.

At the weekend South Australians headed to the polls and elected a new government, with Liberal leader Steven Marshall defeating Labor Premier, Jay Weatherill. The result brings an end to 16 years of uninterrupted Labor Government in South Australia, with the Liberal Party set to hold a small majority in the 47-member parliament.

The Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has today announced changes to the Federal Ministry, following the election of Michael McCormack as Leader of the Nationals and his appointment to the Deputy Prime Ministership earlier this week.

Victorian Nationals MP Darren Chester returns to the Ministry as Minister for Veterans' Affairs, Minister for Defence Personnel and Minister Assisting for the Centenary of ANZAC - portfolios currently held by Mr McCormack.
