Former top Liberal Mathias Cormann still refusing to talk about mastermind role in The Clan

Former Liberal heavyweight Mathias Cormann has for the third time in a week refused to address his role as the mastermind of a group of party powerbrokers that called themselves The Clan.

The ex-Federal finance minister’s high-profile speaking tour of Perth concluded on Thursday night when he rubbed shoulders with business figures invited by businessman John Poynton at a cocktail function at Fraser’s in Kings Park.

But he again refused to answer questions from The West Australian about his part in The Clan, which has been blamed for contributing to the downfall of the WA Liberal Party at consecutive elections.

That’s despite his return from Paris, where he leads the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, coinciding with a State conference considered the most crucial in the party’s history.

Liberal members will vote on reform that proponents claim will ensure the best people are selected to contest the 2025 Federal and State elections — not just those supported by powerbrokers.
