It andapos;s been a privilege to represent the people of Sturt, he said I andapos;d like to thank the electors of Sturt, I andapos;d like to thank my family and my staff for creating the opportunities for me to do what I andapos;ve done for over a quarter of a century The Minister earlier said in a statement that he continues to believe the Liberal Coalition will succeed at the upcoming federal election Twenty seven years ago I was preselected as the Liberal candidate on a platform of renewal in 2019, it is time to renew again, he said Im confident that I leave my seat in good shape

Im sure the Liberal Party will retain Sturt at the coming election At fifty one, I still have the opportunity to have a second career beyond politics" Despite the looming election, Mr Pyne said he did not make the decision to exit federal politics because of a fear of possibly entering the Opposition with the Coalition Whether we win the election in May or whether we lose the election in May I would be making exactly the same decision, he told reporters I believe we will will win the election in May and I think we will win Sturt

I andapos;m leaving because 26 years is a tremendous run I was elected on a platform of renewal 27 years ago and 27 years later, it andapos;s time for renewal again in Sturt Mr Pyne was the youngest member to be elected to the federal Parliament in 1993, taking office at the age of 25 after beating the Liberal incumbent in a pre selection ballot With his retirement, he offered his thanks to the party Thank you to the Liberal Party in South Australia and in Sturt for giving me the opportunity to carry the Liberal banner in this seat to nine elections for over a quarter of a century," he said

They are a wonderful group of people The Liberal Party in South Australia and nationally can be a rambunctious Party at times, but I believe in the Party, and always will Since 1993, Ive been a backbencher for ten years and a frontbencher for sixteen, in Cabinet for six years and the Leadership Group for ten; in government for seventeen and opposition for nine That places me as the longest serving non Labor Member of the House of Representatives from South Australia since Federation in 1901" As for his next move, Mr Pyne told reporters that he plans on moving into the business sector

I andapos;ll go into the private sector and try and create a business, he said I had two years as a lawyer, some would say I was pretending to be a lawyer while I was campaigning for politics but I intend to go into the business world and see where that takes me

Mr Pyne also said there should be three criteria points for whoever replaces him in the seat of Sturt First of all, they have to be a person who knows how to campaign, who knows how to win the seat, Mr Pyne said Second, they have to be an effective representative of the eastern and north eastern suburbs of Adelaide That means it has to be somebody from the area who knows the area well and has known the area well for a long time And thirdly, they have to be somebody that can be a Cabinet Minister in the Australian government

Mr Pynes retirement also comes as Steve Ciobo, the Minister for Defence Industry, also announced his retirement from the Australian Parliament today I will not be recontesting the forthcoming federal election, he told reporters today It andapos;s a decision that I haven andapos;t arrived at lightly, a decision that has been spoken about and discussed for quite some time, a decision that I believe was the right decision The time andapos;s come for me to pass the baton on for someone else to put themselves forward on behalf of the Liberal National Party to be the next Member for Moncrieff That person, whoever it may be, will be a decision for the party membership, and I wish the membership the very best of luck
