Will Hodgman has resigned as Premier of Tasmania today. He has also resigned as an MHA for Franklin.

“I leave this job Tasmania in a better place,” he said at the press conference at Parliament House this afternoon with his family by his side. He said he only just made the decision after reflecting with his family over the Christmas break.

He stated that he does not know what is next for him and that he does not have another job lined up.

The new Premier will be decided by the parliamentary Liberal Party, probably next week. Mr Hodgman declined to endorse anyone for the position, saying it was a matter for the party room.

Nic Street, who lost his seat at the 2018 election, is likely to replace Mr Hodgman in the Franklin recount.
