In his maiden speech in 2010, Michael McCormack stated: “Politics is not about power; it is about people-representing those people and speaking up for them loudly, often and passionately. I have lived my life by this motto: I promise not to be silent when I ought to speak. That is my commitment to the people of the Riverina and to this parliament.” Local journalist, turned small businessman, won the seat of Riverina in 2010 and has since held a range of Ministerial positions since the Liberal-Nationals Government was elected in 2013.

Now Deputy Prime Minister, Mr McCormack seeks to start a conversation with all Australians on the opportunities and challenges within his new role for regional Australia and the nation. The Deputy Prime Minister will update the National Press Club on his Infrastructure and Transport portfolio and his new leadership of The Nationals.
