Gladys Berejiklian has thanked the people of NSW for re-electing her government – and for voting for a woman with a long surname to be premier.
While several seats still hang in the balance, Ms Berejiklian said the Liberal Party would concede no seats lost on Saturday evening.
“First and foremost, I want to thank the people of this great state for having confidence in me and my government,” she said after claiming victory in Saturday’s election.
“My team and I will continue to work our guts out to make sure this state and its people continue to ensure that we have the best opportunities on this planet.”
She said her priorities would be to continue to provide a strong budget for the projects, infrastructure and services for the state.
“We will continue to govern for all of us, for all of you,” Ms Berejiklian said.
Ms Berejiklian, whose family migrated to Australia from Armenia, said she was most proud that “no matter what your background … everyone has the chance to be their best”.
