Perrottet was the President of the NSW Young Liberals Movement in 2005 and served on the NSW State Executive of the Liberal Party from 2008 to 2011.

Political career

Following the resignation of sitting Liberal MP Michael Richardson, Perrottet won Liberal preselection for the very safe Liberal seat of Castle Hill in November 2010, with the backing of right-wing power broker David Clarke. Clarke battled against Alex Hawke, Federal Member for Mitchell, to gain control of preselections. At the 2011 state election, Perrottet was elected with a swing of 12.2 per cent and won 80.8 per cent of the vote on a two-party preferred basis.

With the resignation of Barry O’Farrell as Premier and the subsequent ministerial reshuffle by Mike Baird, the new Liberal Leader, Perrottet was appointed as Minister for Finance and Services in April 2014.

Following a redistribution of electoral boundaries, Dominic Perrottet traded seats with fellow Liberal Ray Williams for the 2015 state election. Perrottet handed Castle Hill to Williams to run in Williams’ equally safe seat of Hawkesbury. Perrottet was elected with 68 per cent of the two-party preferred vote.

After the resignation of Baird as Premier, the main factions of the NSW Liberals agreed to support his deputy, Gladys Berejiklian, as his successor, with Perrottet as her deputy. Berejiklian is from the party’s moderate wing, while Perrottet is from the conservative wing. Accordingly, on 23 January 2017, Berejiklian and Perrottet were unanimously elected as leader and deputy leader of the NSW Liberal Party.

Later that day, Berejiklian was sworn in as New South Wales’ second female Premier. When Berejiklian reshuffled her ministry, Perrottet took over her former ministerial roles as Treasurer and Minister for Industrial Relations, with effect from 30 January 2017.

In the lead up to the 2019 state election, Perrottet attempted to wrest Castle Hill back from Williams, citing work-life balance as Hawkesbury was too far for him to travel. This was unsuccessful, with Williams retaining the Liberal preselection, and resulted in media reports of significant party infighting and Perrottet publicly apologising.

Eventually, Perrottet abandoned the Hawkesbury preselection, and he settled on his second-choice, the equally safe seat of Epping. At the 2019 state election, Perrottet was elected as Member for Epping and reappointed as Treasurer in the second Berejiklian ministry.

Most recently, Perrottet’s career as NSW Treasurer was marred by allegations that he had mismanaged the state’s workers compensation scheme, iCare. A combined investigation by the Age, the Sydney Morning Herald and ABC TV’s Four Corners found that iCare had underpaid injured workers by up to $80 million and that the scheme had accrued up to $4 billion in debt under his administration.
