Health Minister Greg Hunt quits politics

Health Minister Greg Hunt is expected to announce that he will leave politics, Australian Financial Review reported.

Almost 20 years after he was first elected to Congress, he is reported to announce that he will not re-contest in the Victorian Flinders seat.

Hunt, who will be announced Thursday, will serve as health minister until the elections.

Finance Minister Josh Frydenberg was asked about reports that his colleague had retired on Wednesday.

“I wait to see the details of Greg Hunt’s comment you mentioned,” he said.

“Greg is my best friend at this place.

“We are very dear friends and he was an excellent health minister throughout this crisis.

“The fact that Australia is one of the lowest mortality rates in the world and we are one of the highest immunization rates in the world is less than the amazing work that all healthcare professionals have done across Australia. And Greg as the once-in-a-century Pandemic Health Minister was outstanding.

“Leave more comments to see exactly what statement you are referring to.”

Hunt was asked by ABC insider host David Spears on November 14th if he would run again.

Hunt replied, “Preselected and running.”

I will come more.
