Constance abandons bid to enter the federal Parliament

ABC Reports: NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance has abandoned his bid to enter the federal Parliament less than 24 hours after announcing he would seek Liberal pre-selection at the Eden-Monaro by-election.

Mr Constance, whose state electorate of Bega overlaps the federal division of Eden-Monaro, was seen as a strong candidate.

Labor's Mike Kelly holds the seat on a 0.9 per cent margin but resigned last week for health reasons, sparking a by-election.

A date for the by-election has yet to be announced, with coronavirus restrictions predicted to cause a delay.

Mr Constance is expected to release a statement later today. read the full article HERE
