Tim Morris in the mix

THE most popular politician in Lyons, Greens MHA Tim Morris, looks set for a key role in the new Greens-supported Labor state government if Tasmania’s biggest newspapers are to be believed. Both the Mercury and The Examiner are reporting that Premier David Bartlett and Greens leader Nick McKim went for a team-building bike-ride up Mt Wellington yesterday. This follows the Governor’s decision to re-commission Mr Bartlett as premier last week, in the wake of a surprise announcement by the Greens that they would support a Labor minority government.

Today’s Sunday Tasmanian reports that Mr Morris, of New Norfolk, is a likely candidate for Speaker of the House of Assembly, while the Sunday Examiner suggests that Mr Morris could be appointed Minister for Local Government in a trade-off that would enable Labor veteran Michael Polley to retain his cherished position as Speaker.
