Upper house test for Berejiklian

Looks like the no-confidence motion against NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian in the upper house will go down later this afternoon, on the casting vote of the president.

Labor has been refused a pair for Shaoquett Moselmane, who is on leave while under investigation for his ties to China. The independent, Justin Field, two Animal Justice party Mps and Fred Nile look set to vote with the government.

Asked whether she could govern without the confidence of the Upper House, Berejiklian said: “Lets just see what happens.”

The vote is not till after 4pm, so the landscape could change. A vote of no confidence in the upper house would not affect the government’s ability to govern, but signals a bumpier than usual road with the minor parties in coming weeks.
