Palaszczuk's first year in office an unanticipated success

Roger Scott writes in The Conversation (17.2.16) that Annastacia Palaszczuk's first year in office has been an unanticpated success:

'Annastacia Palaszczuk has just completed the end of her first year as Queensland premier following Labor’s stunning election victory over the Liberal National Party (LNP).

'The LNP – and some commentators – identified Palaszczuk as an “accidental” premier, a byproduct of an antagonistic reaction to her predecessor, Campbell Newman.

'But Palaszczuk and her frontbench team have thus far proved successful in tackling three key problems: maintaining parliamentary stability, restoring relationships with the judiciary and police, and ending the perceived policy inertia in job creation linked in part to internal conflicts over environmental protection and in part to issues of managing debt without privatisation.'
