Daniel Mookhey was elected to the Parliament of NSW on 6 May 2015 as a Member of the Legislative Council.
The son of Indian migrants, Daniel was the first MP to be sworn into an Australian Parliament on the Hindu religious text The Bhagavad Gita.
Prior to entering the Parliament Daniel held senior roles in the Australian Council of Trade Unions. Daniel is a formidable campaigner and this passion has translated into his performances in the Parliament, exposing waste and incompetence in the Berejiklian led Government.
Daniel has been a passionate advocate for the people of NSW, especially in rural and regional communities. He will continue to hold this Government to account and stand up for workers’ rights.
