The Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff David Epstein has resigned and will be replaced by young gun Alister Jordan.
Epstein had been a very successful consultant prior to being tapped for running Rudd’s office when he was Opposition Leader.
The timing of the departure is a big surprise although it has been widely known that Epstein did not consider running the Prime Minister’s office a long term opportunity for him. He will not be accepting an appointment within the Australian government.
Around twenty-eight years old, the new Chief, Alister Jordan emerges as possibly the most powerful twenty something in the history of the Commonwealth of Australia.
