The Northern Territory’s 14th parliament sits for the last time of the four-year term

Power and water in a budget black hole but management vows the lights won't go out with its primary supplier of gas running low. Power and Water Corporation will lose $15 million this financial year as it's forced to buy more expensive gas from other companies. The territory's 3 government owned energy companies fronting the last day of estimates on the same day Parliament meets to pass the budget. Today marks the last day of the 14th Assembly and for three long serving members the end of their political careers. Labour's Nicole Manison, once seen as heir apparent to the top job, dealing herself out following her, Paul Kirby and the longest serving member of Parliament, Independent Kezia Purek, after a colourful career. And I think we'll all miss her. She always keeps us entertained a bit as well. Keys here. So I wish retiring members all the best for the future. The leaders now gearing up for a fight on the big issues. It's crime. It's always cost of living as well. And both of those things we've addressed through our budget process. We have an economy going backwards, crime is out of control and cost of living is through the roof. This parliament was voted in in August 2020 at a time dominated by coronavirus. Since then it's had to deal with a number of key issues including crime, integrity and the gaps between Indigenous and non Indigenous Territorians. On August 24 this year, it will again be the turn of voters to decide just how well this Parliament performed.
