Sam Dastyari should return to politics, says NSW Labor general secretary Kaila Murnain
NSW Labor powerbroker Kaila Murnain has begged disgraced former senator Sam Dastyari to return to the political frontline.
Mr Dastyari was once seen as a rising ALP star before a scandal over his links to Chinese interests forced him to quit in December 2017.
“Sam, if you’re watching, we do want you back,” she told The Daily Telegraph’s Political Editor Sharri Markson.
“He has enormous talent,” Ms Murnain added.
“Frankly the Labor Party is very lucky to think that we might be able to get him back at some point in some capacity … I really want to see him play a role.” Since his resignation, Mr Dastyari has regularly appeared on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on KIIS FM.
He also works with political consultants Essential Media.
