Former Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett has called on long-serving federal Coalition MPs to follow the example of Kelly O’Dwyer and step down at the next election. Kennett says he does not think O’Dwyer was retiring because she did not believe she could retain her seat; O’Dwyer has stated she is stepping down to spend more time with her family, and Kennett says he takes at "face value" her reasons for not seeking re-election. Kennett said that Kevin Andrews and Julie Bishop were two Coalition MPs that should step down, while Prime Minister Scott Morrison has rejected Bill Shorten’s claim that his MPs were resigning because they thought the government would lose heavily at the next election.
