Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has announced a new governor-general.

The King accepted the PM’s recommendation to appoint Samantha Mostyn AO, a business leader and advocate, to the role as the 28th governor-general.

She will also become the second woman to serve in the role.

“Sam Mostyn is an exceptional leader who represents the best of modern Australia,” Mr Albanese said on Wednesday.

She will be sworn into the role in July, taking over from current Governor-General David Hurley.

“I’m deeply honoured by this great privilege and look forward to representing the values, hopes and aspirations of all Australians,” Ms Mostyn said.

“I will never underestimate or take for granted the expectations that come with high office and I am ready to serve with integrity, compassion, and respect.”
