Please Explain podcast: Berejiklian vows to stay despite explosive revelations

Yesterday, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian revealed explosive details of her private life to the corruption watchdog ICAC, stating she was in a close relationship with disgraced former MP Daryl Maguire.

The relationship began around the 2015 state election and finished a couple of months ago, two years after Mr Maguire was forced to quit Parliament after a corruption inquiry exposed his attempts to broker property deals and seek commission on behalf of a Chinese developer.

Although she admitted to “stuffing up” in her personal life, the Premier has ruled out resigning and is adamant her secret five-year relationship had no influence on her decisions as NSW Premier.

Clearly embarrassed, Ms Berejiklian described the day’s ICAC hearing as one of the “most difficult days” of her life.

In this episode, senior journalist Jacqueline Maley is joined by state political reporter Lucy Cormack to discuss what Glady’s ICAC revelations mean for the NSW state government.
