The Rudd Ministry: Age, Sex, State And Factional Breakdown

This page provides statistical data on the second Rudd ministry.

The new Cabinet, outer Ministry and Parliamentary Secretaries were sworn in on July 1, 2013. There are 30 ministers, comprising 20 members in Cabinet and 10 members in the outer ministry. There are 12 parliamentary secretaries who act as assistants to the ministry. All 42 members are sworn as Executive Councillors.

The first table shows the ministry by age, sex, state, parliamentary chamber and faction.

The second table lists each member of the executive and gives their birthdays, ages, electorates, states, portfolio and faction. It also shows when they were first elected to parliament and when they first joined the executive. A handful of members have also served in state parliaments and this is shown in the table.

I have shown only the main Left and Right factional affiliations, disregarding the mainly state-based sub-groupings.

With the exception of the party leaders, who are shown first, the second table lists members of the executive in order of age.
