Peter Poulos resigns as NSW Parliamentary Secretary

·

Liberal MLC Peter Poulos has resigned from his position as parliamentary secretary for Wollongong and the Illawarra after revelations he shared explicit pictures of fellow MP Robyn Preston to another Liberal Party member.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has this afternoon accepted Mr Poulos’ resignation but said he remained a member of parliament.

“He obviously has made a mistake he has apologised for, that I think he gave a heartfelt apology for, not just to the people of the state but particularly to the Member for Hawkesbury Robyn Preston. She’s accepted that apology,” Mr Perrottet said.

“As well he doesn’t want to be a distraction for me for the campaign. I’ve accepted his resignation from his parliamentary secretary duties.”

Earlier this week it was revealed Mr Poulos leaked explicit photos of Ms Preston to a Liberal Party member during a pre-selection battle five years ago. 

The photos were from the 1980s when Ms Preston modelled for Penthouse magazine.

Mr Poulos last week apologised for the “regrettable mistake” and Ms Preston urged the media to “move on.”
