STATEMENT ON THE RESIGNATION OF GLADYS BEREJIKLIAN

I have served as the Deputy Premier to Gladys Berejiklian for almost five years and in that time she has led this State through some of its darkest days.

Everyone has the right to defend their name and I wish Gladys all the best for her future.

Any speculation regarding Liberal Party leadership remains an issue for the Liberal Party.

The NSW Nationals remain committed to a strong and stable NSW Coalition Government.
