Daniel Andrews’ election campaign was “derailed”

Monash University political scientist Dr. Zareh Ghazarian says there has been a “change” and the Victoria Labor Party election campaign has been “diverted” by the problems that have arisen.

Dr Ghazarian referred to new revelations of a collision between Daniel Andrews’ wife Catherine and cyclist Ryan Meuleman in 2013, along with the recent backlash from the United Firefighters Union in Victoria.

“These kinds of things, when they emerge, derail the campaign because the premier and the government have to respond to these problems rather than have that clean air that parties would like to have in order to talk about their own policies and their own political agenda”, told Sky News host Chris Smith.
