Matthew Guy has confirmed he will not re-contest the Liberal leadership after Saturday's election loss.
"My congratulations again to Premier Andrews and his LAbor team for their victory at Saturday's election," he wrote in a statement.
"I would like to place on record my deep appreciation for the hard work of all my Liberal members in the last parliament. They were the most unified team of any parliamentary party in Australia.
"I also want to thank and acknowledge the work of so many Liberal candidates, the state secretariat and my own personal staff. They have given up so much and worked so hard.
"Now that the parliamentary party has been called together, they will elect a new leadership team. I will not be a candidate for the position of leader."
