Carine Electorate Profile

Current Member

As a local Member of Parliament, Tony Krsticevic knows the value of hard work, respect and positive belief in the individual’s freedom to succeed. Raised in a working class family, these values were a fundamental platform during his childhood.

Tony’s parents came to Australia with no more than the shirts on their backs and hearts full of hopes and dreams. Since the beginning, Tony’s father always taught him that “hard and honest work” will reap you the “benefits of a happy and prosperous life.” He also said that “everything in life worth having is worth working hard for.”

After completing a Bachelor of Business with a major in Accounting and Computing, Tony worked for the Australian Taxation Office for 20 years. Tony is the Opposition Whip in the Legislative Assembly; Shadow Minister for Community Services; Youth; and Special Shadow Minister for Homelessness; Cost of Living; Housing; and Shadow Minister Assisting the Leader in Citizenship & Multicultural Affairs.
