NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro resigns
John Barilaro has announced he will resign as Deputy Premier.
The member for Monaro will quit as Nationals Leader with a party room meeting to be held on Wednesday to decide on the new Leader.
A by-election will be planned for the seat of Monaro.
As we emerge from lockdown, we must embrace this time as a new beginning for our State, and welcome the opportunity it presents for a refresh.
I have decided now is the right time for me to hand the reins over to new leadership, and resign as Deputy Premier of NSW. pic.twitter.com/MeWBWMR38P
