Australian Cypriot Andrea Michael has been elected in the new South Australian Labor Government after Peter Malinauskas’ monumental win against the outgoing South Australian government under Steven Marshall, who announced on Sunday he would step down as Liberal leader.
Labor has won 26 seats in South Australia’s 47-seat parliament giving Andrea Michaels high chances of moving from shadow ministers into ministerial positions.
Andrea Michaels is the State Member of Parliament for the seat of Enfield.
Andrea has been serving as Shadow Minister for Small and Family Business, Consumer and Business Affairs, Planning and Urban Development, and Housing.
Andrea’s family fled war-torn Cyprus in 1974, landing in South Australia in 1976 when she was just 11 months old. Andrea’s family arrived with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
“I am thrilled with the election result. Now it is time to work hard and move the state forward” Ms Michaels told Neos Kosmos.
Andrea is a proud mother of two boys, Sebastian and Charlie.
