Daniel Andrews resigns as Victorian premier

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews held a press conference where he announced he will step down from the role of premier and as member for Mulgrave.
“I’m also proud to think of all that we have achieved over these nine years,” he said.
Andrews said thoughts of what life after politics looked like started creeping in during conversations with his family in recent weeks, and that’s how he knew it was time to go.
“It’s not an easy job being premier of our state,” he said.
“That’s not a complaint, that’s just a fact.
“It requires 100 per cent from you and your family. That, of course, is time limited and now is the time to step away.”
Andrews said the only way he knew how to do the job was by allowing it to consume and define him. He dubbed himself a “true workaholic”.
“Every waking moment is about the work and that takes a toll,” he said.
“The moment you are not comfortable with that decision for you and the people you love, you have to step away.
