Shadow Ministry of Anthony Albanese

A new Australian shadow ministry was formed by Anthony Albanese following his election as leader of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) and Leader of the Opposition on 30 May 2019. It was announced on 2 June.

The shadow ministry is the Opposition's alternative to the Second Morrison Ministry, which was sworn in on 29 May 2019. Its most senior members form a "shadow cabinet" mirroring the official Cabinet of Australia led by Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Each state's factions (Left and Right) were allocated a quota of shadow ministers. The composition of the shadow ministry was determined by the state factions, but the Leader of the Opposition allocated portfolios and selected the shadow cabinet.[1] The shadow ministry contains 30 members, including a shadow cabinet of 20 members, and there are also twelve shadow assistant ministers.[2]
