John Pesutto - The Identity of Victoria's Liberal Party


1 May 2023

John Pesutto is the State Liberal Member for Hawthorn, Liberal Leader of the Victorian Opposition and Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs. He lost his seat in 2018 but re-won it in the Nov 2022 state election, before quickly being elected as party leader.

He joined Discernable to answer questions around what the Liberal Party actually stands for, why they made moves against their own MPs Moira Deeming, Renee Heath and Bernie Finn, what they will do about housing affordability, energy availability and equity programs, and ultimately why younger voters should consider voting for the Liberal Party.
