Grant Schultz has resigned from the Liberal Party after being disendorsed as its candidate for the New South Wales seat of Gilmore at the upcoming federal election. He has criticised Prime Minister Scott Morrison for intervening in the pre-selection process, amid speculation that indigenous leader Warren Mundine will be selected as the Liberals’ candidate despite not yet being a member of the party. Schultz has flagged his intention to contest the seat as an independent. Mundine is a former national president of the Australian Labor Party.
