BREAKING: Emma Husar will not recontest seat at next federal election

Labor MP Emma Husar announced on Wednesday that she will not recontest her western Sydney seat of Lindsay at the next federal election, amid an internal Labor investigation into allegations of bullying and misconduct made against her by former staff at her electorate office.

Despite denying the allegations, Ms Husar told Channel Nine that “enough is enough”.

“It’s a disappointing day for me,” Ms Husar said. “I’ve made the decision, the agonising decision, that I won’t be recontesting Lindsay at the next election.”

Ms Husar currently holds the seat by a margin of just one percent.

The next federal election is expected to take place before 18 May 2019.

This is a developing story.
