Yesterday The Hon. Ken Wyatt AM MP became the first Aboriginal person to be appointed a Minister in the Australian Government, as Assistant Minister for Health.
On his appointment, Mr Wyatt said, "We're breaking, in a sense, a ceiling that we put there and thought that we would never, ever break through. There's the symbolism of having made it at a level that is a prime position in the nation."
Mr Wyatt brings decades of experience in leading Aboriginal health and education policy and programs. We also strongly believe in the importance of listening to the voices of frontline communities, and ensuring they are heard at the centre of government.That's why this appointment is so significant.
Please pray for Mr Wyatt as he brings his experience in Aboriginal health to the frontbench and pray that he continues to consult with all Aboriginal peoples and the Aboriginal voices that are often not brought to the consultation table.
