Industrial Relations Minister Kelly O’Dwyer will retire from federal politics at the next election. O’Dwyer, who holds the seat of Higgins in Victoria with a margin of just under 10 per cent, rejected suggestions she was quitting because of polling that indicated she might lose the seat. O’Dwyer stated her reasons for retiring were personal, and that she and husband Jon were keen to have a third child. O’Dwyer said she was very confident a woman would be chosen to replace her as the Liberal candidate for Higgins, while Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he had told O’Dwyer that he wants her to remain in her current role until the election.
