Former premier Campbell Newman has resigned from Queensland’s Liberal National Party, saying he was dismayed the political wing “failed” to stand up for the party’s core values.

In a statement released on Monday, Mr Newman said the governments’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic was “the last straw” and accused the Coalition of abandoning its principles in federal and state politics across Australia.

Mr Newman hinted at plans to return to politics at a federal level, saying he intended to “continue to contribute to Australia’s political discourse in the future”.
