Tom Elliott questions why Daniel Andrews has reinstated Adem Somyurek after he was sacked in 2015

The Premier has today announced his new-look cabinet, which is made up of 50 per cent women in ministry roles.

A number of ministers have voluntarily stood down, and a number have been promoted to cabinet.

One of whom is the former Small Business Minister Adem Somyurek.

“Now who is he?” Tom Elliott said on 3AW Drive.

“He was suspended years ago as the result of a complaint made against him by his chief of staff Dimity Paul.

“Who said that he made inappropriate and unfortunate physical contact with her.

“At the time Daniel Andrews said he’d lost confidence in Mr Somyurek.

“Well I wonder what’s happened that he now has regained his confidence in Mr Somyurek, who was stood down because of threatening and intimidating behaviour?”
