Western Australia’s resource-rich leader resigns 2023

After successfully steering the resource-rich state through the COVID epidemic, the Premier of Western Australia suddenly announced his resignation on Monday, claiming tiredness as the reason for his decision.

Mark McGowan was elected as Premier of Western Australia in 2017, and he is a member of the Labor Party, which is the dominant party in Australia and also has a substantial majority in Western Australia.

According to what he said at a news conference, he would also be resigning from his position in the state parliament this week. “I have always enjoyed the difficult tasks of resolving issues, coming to conclusions, achieving goals, and assisting other people.

But the fact of the matter is that I’m exhausted, to an extraordinary degree. In point of fact, I’m worn out,” McGowan said.

The replacement procedure for McGowan has not been disclosed by Labor as of yet.

McGowan’s COVID policies, which completely separated the state from the rest of Australia and proved to be extremely popular with voters, led to his landslide re-election victory in 2021.

The Labor Party now owns 53 of the state’s 59 lower house seats, and it is largely anticipated that they will win the election that is scheduled to take place in 2025.

“While it’s true that the sheer scale of his final election victory earned him a place in Australian political history, I know Mark’s definition of success has always been about delivering for people, improving lives, and creating progress that endures,” Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said in a statement.

Albanese was referring to the fact that the sheer scale of Abbott’s final election victory earned him a place in Australian political history. Iron ore and natural gas are only two of the many valuable resources that can be found in Western Australia, which is the biggest state in terms of land area.
