Tasmanian premier resigns from politics

Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein has announced he is resigning from politics.

Mr Gutwein, 57, said he has, “nothing left in the tank to give,” after the past two years.

The member for Bass said a recount will need to be done in his electorate, and he’ll remain premier until a new leader is elected by the Liberal Party later this year.

“The past two years have delivered unforeseen challenges as we’ve navigated through COVID-19, and focus on rebuilding a stronger Tasmania,” he said at a press conference on Monday afternoon.

“During this time, I rightly focused on everyone else’s family, are I want to spend some time focusing on my own.

“What I’ve found after the last two years especially is I have nothing left in the tank to give.”

He boasted Tasmania had had “the best” COVID-19 response in the country, and also thanked his family including wife Mandy, son Finn and daughter Millie.
