Brisbane federal MP Gambaro quits politics

LIBERAL MP Teresa Gambaro is not recontesting her Queensland seat at the next federal election.

She is the latest in a number of resignations from the Coalition, including cabinet ministers, former trade minister Andrew Robb and former deputy prime minister Warren Truss.

Ms Gambaro held the seat of Brisbane since 2010 and previously held the seat of Petrie for more than a decade before losing to Labor in 2007.

In a statement, she said that the time had come to "pursue other opportunities".

"To the Prime Minister, the Honourable Malcolm Turnbull and the parliamentary team, all the best for the upcoming federal election, and I recognise the exciting vision that he has for our great country," she said.
