Murrumbidgee MLA Giulia Jones has resigned as Deputy Leader of the Canberra Liberal Party.

Ms Jones handed in her resignation on Monday morning, after ‘considerable reflection’ over the summer break.

“Like so many Canberrans, I have felt very keenly the ongoing pressures of the coronavirus, a situation that will remain volatile and uncertain for some time to come.”

“As the mother of a large family I want to provide them with the support they need and deserve.  I am most grateful for the care and commitment of my husband towards our family and feel that it is important to do more at home with them.”

ACT Opposition and Party Leader, Elizabeth Lee, thank Ms Jones for her service in the first all-female leadership team in the ACT Legislative Assembly.

“Mrs Jones will continue to play an integral role in the Canberra Liberals team as we work toward a change of government in 2024.”
