New Northern Territory Labor Leader Sworn In

Australia’s Northern Territory (NT)’s Labor has selected a mother of two boys and a former physical education teacher to replace Michael Gunner’s surprise resignation as leader.
Former health minister Natasha Fyles Fyles was sworn in as the new chief minister by the territory’s administrator on May 13.
After becoming the Chief Minister in August 2016, Gunner announced his intention to resign from office on May 10, moments after handing down the NT budget, attributing his departure to wanting to focus on family.
“It’s no secret that the last few years have been intense. It’s taken a lot out of me like it has for plenty of us. Add to that a heart attack and a couple of kids, and it has caused me to reflect a lot over the past few weeks,” he said.
