Premier Resigns

Release Date: 14/01/2020
The TCCI today congratulated Will Hodgman on his premiership of Tasmania.
“Will Hodgman’s announcement of his resignation as Premier, effective immediately, has come as a great shock,” TCCI CEO Michael Bailey said.

“But as Tasmania’s 45th Premier, he has done a great job leading his State with his Cabinet team.

“Mr Hodgman ranked his Government’s achievements in education as his proudest, but the TCCI would also like to acknowledge and applaud the confidence and leadership he gave the Tasmanian business community.”

Mr Bailey said Mr Hodgman led the Liberal Party to Government in 2014 after 16 years of Labor and Labor-Green Governments.

“The Liberal Party has also lost its most popular member, as his election returns in 2014 and 2018 showed.”

Mr Bailey said the TCCI looks forward to working with the next Premier of Tasmania.
