Newly reelected Keira MP Ryan Park played down questions about a potential leadership challenge after NSW Labor lost the state election.
Mr Park said NSW Labor leader Michael Daley had his support at his and Wollongong MP Paul Scully's celebration party at Corrimal RSL on Saturday night.
"The ambition I have is to continue to be the member for Keira," Mr Park said.
"That is the most important job. It is all too early for those sort of [leadership discussions] at this stage."
In conceding defeat, Mr Daley thanked those who had supported him and said he became the leader of the state Labor party 134 days ago - and intended to stay there.
"I thought that would be enough time ... but it just wasn't long enough. But I can tell you that it is my intention to remain the leader of the party," he said.
Mr Park conceded the Labor party would have to reassess its campaign.
"The Labor party will spend the next couple of days and weeks getting together as a group to look at what went right and what didn't go so well," the shadow treasurer said.
"That is what good organisations and good political parties do at the end of every campaign.
"No doubt the last week was a tough one for Labor.
"You want to have your best week in your last week and we didn't have that. It has had some impact on the result."
The Labor party loss followed a disastrous final week for Mr Daley, who was forced to defend himself against charges of racism after a video emerged of him saying Asian immigrants were "taking the jobs" of young Sydney workers.
Mr Daley suffered a second setback in the final days of the campaign when, during a live TV debate, he forgot the costings of his signature education policies.
Mr Park said it was "fantastic" to be reelected as Keira MP and that role would always be his focus.
"There is no greater privilege then to represent the community that I come from," he said.
"This is the start of my ninth year where the community has supported me."
Mr Ryan thanked branch members and Young Labor members for sticking with him and working hard during past campaigns.
"To the supporters and volunteers, thank you so much. This has been a tough campaign for me and its one I have spent the least time at home and down in Keira," he said.
"There has been an enormous amount of travel and pressure that comes with my other roles."
Mr Park paid tribute to his staff, especially Jenelle Rimmer who has been working for him for eight years, and thanked his family for their support.
