Ms Berejiklian resigned on October 1 amid revelations the Independent Commission Against Corruption was investigating whether she breached the public trust or encouraged corrupt conduct during her long, secret relationship with disgraced former Liberal MP Daryl Maguire.
Mr Constance announced he was quitting 48 hours later, confirming he intended to contest the federal seat of Gilmore, while Mr Barilaro’s resignation followed a day later.
Since May, the number of people in employment in NSW has fallen by 244,000 and a further 217,000 people reported working zero hours last month due to “economic or other reasons”.
Mr Minns pointed at Thursday’s job figures as the reason the government MPs, except for Ms Berejiklian who resigned amid an ICAC scandal, should have not resigned in the first place.
“It’s a sobering number and it’s a reflection on the huge role that the NSW government and in fact, all political parties have in front of us,” Mr Minns said.
He said Labor estimated Ms Gibbons’ seat of Holsworthy had lost close to 6000 jobs since the Delta lockdown.
“The responsibility and priority of the Member for Holsworthy should be for their jobs, not her own,” he said.
“And the most obvious way that the Member for Holsworthy can demonstrate that is to abandon these fanciful plans of running for a federal seat and instead do her job representing the community that she was elected to just three years ago.”
