Porter Continues as Minister for Social Services

Christian Porter will continue as minister for social services with support from Zed Seselja who has been newly appointed assistant minister for social services and multicultural affairs.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced his new cabinet in Canberra on Monday.

Only minimal changes have been made, with all existing ministers to remain within cabinet, although there are some shifts in portfolios.

Liberal Senator for the Australian Capital Territory, Seselja was one of three new appointments as assistant ministers.

During the election campaign Seselja attended the Community Council for Australia forum on the future of the Not for Profit sector, held at the National Press Club, to debate their policies affecting the sector.

He told Pro Bono Australia News at the time that the government needed to find better ways of working with the charity sector.

“Certainly respect is a critical part of our community… I want to see them [charities] continue to thrive and for the government to continue to find ways to help them and not necessarily in a domineering way,” Seselja said.

“Now we need to continue to make the charity commission the most effective organisation it can be. I know there is this reform agenda around red tape and that’s certainly what we are supportive of, so I think that’s going to be an obvious area of collaboration between the next government and the ACNC.”
