‘It’s time for me to go’: NSW deputy premier John Barilaro resigns from politics – video | Australia news

New South Wales deputy premier John Barilaro has announced he will resign from state politics and said he will not be running for federal politics. ‘I will be a keen watcher of politics but not a participant’, he said. ‘I have no intention and no will that I will be running for Eden-Monaro or for federal politics’. Barilaro said the public defamation case against YouTuber Jordan Shanks is a ‘big reason’ for his departure from politics. Barilaro’s resignation comes days after premier Gladys Berejiklian’s shock resignation. Barilaro was confident the state’s treasure, Dominic Perrottet, will be taking over from Berejiklian as NSW premier
