Statement from the Opposition Leader Gary Higgins

5 February 2019

"What others choose to do with their time is up to them. We won’t be distracted by a hypothetical debate and we’re not involved in any squabbling.

"We are concentrating on issues that matter to Territorians like the dire economic crisis we’re in and the escalating crime and anti-social behaviour in our community.

"These are intensely serious times for the Northern Territory – a time for serious people who want to address the serious issues.

"We won’t be distracted by the shenanigans of others. We’re here to represent Territorians and we’ll continue to do so with passion and dedication."
