The appointmentcame within days of Dr Kelly being officially returned to the seat of Eden-Monaro following the election earlier this month.

On Thursday, July 21, the MP was declared the winning candidate by Australian Electoral Commission divisional returning officer for the division of Eden-Monaro, Renee Damasena, at the Queanbeyan AEC office.

Dr Kelly bested eight other candidates vying for the electorate, including incumbent Liberal member Peter Hendyby a slim difference of 1683 votes.

On his appointment to the shadow ministry, Dr Kelly said he looked forward to “continue my near 30-year service in Australia’s national security”.

“I look forward to bringing to bear my experience in Somalia, Bosnia, Timor Leste, Iraq and Afghanistan, in government in the roles of Parliamentary Secretary for Defence and Minister for Defence Materiel, and as security adviser to the Leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten.

”I will be committed to ensuring that Australia’s Defence Industry is properly supported and developed as a critical aspect of our national security capability, contributing also to our overall economic strength.

“Our ADF deserves the best support that we can provide them with to keep them safe and successful.”
