Daniel Andrews resigns as Victorian Premier


Daniel Andrews will step down as Victorian Premier after nine years in power, announcing he will resign from the job and as member for Mulgrave at 5pm on Wednesday.

The premier made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon at a snap press conference organised with just 40 minutes’ notice.

“When it is time, it is time,” Andrews said.

“Recently, in talking to my kids and Cath, thoughts of what life will be like after this job has started to creep in.

“I have always known that the moment that happens it is time to go and to give this privilege, this amazing responsibility to someone else.”

The Andrews Labor government was elected into power in 2014, with the premier leading his party to a third term in November 2022.

Earlier this year, he became Labor’s longest-serving premier in the state.
