Adem Somyurek is a Turkish Australian Labor Party politician serving as Minister for Local Government and the Minister for Small Business in the Andrews Ministry.
Somyurek first entered parliament after winning the Legislative Council province of Eumemmerring at the 2002 election, making his inaugural speech to the Victorian Legislative Council as the new member for Eumemmerring on 27 February 2003.
After the reforms that introduced proportional representation into the Legislative Council, Somyurek won a safe spot on the Labor ticket for the South Eastern Metropolitan Region and was easily re-elected at the 2006 election and was elected in the 2010 and 2014 State elections.
In his third term (2010–2014) Somyurek was promoted into the Shadow Ministry of the Daniel Andrews-led Labor opposition.
Upon election to his fourth term (2014–2018), on 27 November 2018 Premier Daniel Andrews announced that Somyurek would be rejoining the Cabinet in the new Andrews Ministry.
On 29 November 2018 Somyurek was sworn in as Minister for Small Business, Innovation, and Trade within the re-elected Andrews Government.
