The next deputy premier is said to be Jacinta Allan—from the socialist left wing faction.
Normally in ALP the leader and deputy are different factions - Andrews is left; Merlino is right.
Andrews is changing that making it the most left wing gov in Australia.
If Jacinta Allan becomes Deputy Premier, we’ll have two socialists occupying the two key posts in the Govt of the Peoples Republic of Victoria. In fact, the Gov will be so left, they won’t be able to stand straight.
Dan Andrews picks Jacinta Allan as Deputy Premier from the socialist left faction.
You are about to witness wokeness on a grand scale, even more than before.
16 ALP MP’s have resigned or lost preselection in this term.
One more … #DanNext
Premier Daniel Andrews says the new leadership team shared the view Jacinta Allan should be deputy premier. This would break with the tradition of having a premier/deputy premier from the Labor left and right factions.
Daniel Andrews farewells Victorian Deputy Premier James Merlino, who is stepping down alongside three other senior Victorian ministers. Jacinta Allan is to be recommended as his replacement.

#Breaking: Premier Daniel Andrews has said he will recommend Transport Minister Jacinta Allan as the new Deputy Premier.
The motion will need to be confirmed by Caucus at a meeting tomorrow. #auspol #springst
Jacinta Allan, Tim Pallas, Lily D'Ambrosio, Richard Wynne, etc. etc.
Andrews Government is made up of competent ministers who get things done.
Jacinta Allan is poised to become Victoria's new Deputy Premier, with Daniel Andrews choosing her to replace the outgoing James Merlino.
He's one of four senior ministers to quit the cabinet five months from election day. @msanto92
Former Labor MP Michael Danby has accused the Victorian government of being “one of the most centralist and left wing government’s ever” ahead of Premier Daniel Andrews' recommendation to appoint his factional ally Jacinta Allan as his Deputy.
Daniel Andrews has revealed which MP has been recommended to take on the role of deputy premier following the resignation of James Merlino.
💥💥👇👇 Daniel Andrews wants JACINTA ALLAN as his Deputy Premier. Jacinta is from the same Far Left Socialist Communist Faction as Andrews #sackdanandrews #DanNext #VoteVicLaborOut https://t.co/QqElcYX0KQ
Four senior ministers have resigned just five months out from the state election. The premier is pushing for Jacinta Allan to become the new deputy premier, but there are still questions as to who will take over as ministers for police and major events. @SharnelleVella
Best wishes @JacintaAllanMP
. Would be wonderful to see a #Bendigo woman in the Deputy Premier (and maybe one day, Premier?) role. You can’t be what you can’t see, and rural and regional women would love to see this. #springst https://t.co/KI6Y7WmMPN
The elevation of Jacinta Allan, from Andrew's socialist left faction, to Victorian Deputy Premier indicates Daniel Andrews will leave Parliament irrespective of victory or loss at the November Election.
Andrews will remain for a few months ONLY.
Allan ticks all the boxes.
Jacinta Allan tipped to be new deputy premier of Victoria after four senior ministers resign. Allan’s appointment would give Daniel Andrews’ socialist left faction control of the two most senior positions in the party. 👍👏😁GOOD‼️ https://t.co/LMVhThXt18
The position to watch is Deputy Premier. While it is expected to go to a right faction (given Premier Andrews is from the left faction), he wants to appoint Transport Infrastructure Minister and preferred successor Jacinta Allan (Left) #auspol #vicpol #springst
