The Napthine Ministry is the 68th ministry of the Government of Victoria. It was led by the Premier of Victoria, Denis Napthine, and Deputy Premier, Peter Ryan. It succeeded the Baillieu Ministry on 6 March 2013, following the resignation of Ted Baillieu from the Liberal Party leadership, and the elevation of Denis Napthine to Premier.[1] Blue entries indicate members of the Liberal Party, while green entries indicate members of the National Party. Napthine reshuffled his cabinet on 17 March 2014, after the announced retirements of Jeanette Powell, Hugh Delahunty, Nick Kotsiras and Peter Hall.[2] It was replaced by the Andrews Ministry on 4 December 2014 after the defeat of the Napthine government at the 2014 state election.
