Berejiklian departure is 'loss of talent', says Tesch

The departure of Ms Gladys Berejiklian as Premier and from parliament was a "loss of another talented politician", according to Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.

She said it was unfortunate to see a strong female leader to go.

"Despite our different political ideals, one thing we have in common is the respect for women in leadership and it is absolutely devastating to see a strong female leader leave politics.

"There is no denying that Gladys Berejiklian put her all into NSW and took on a mammoth task, especially in recent months where she has been NSW's strength during lockdown."

She said it was "a difficult day for women in leadership as we lose another talented politician in an already male -dominated field and Liberal Party."

Ms Berejiklian will now face a public inquiry by the Independent Commission Against Corruption from October 18, which is expected to continue on for 10 days.

The investigation will focus on the period between 2012 and 2018 to determine whether Ms Berejiklian participated in conduct amounting to a breach of public trust when exercising her public functions, said Ms Tesch.

"The investigations have been launched as a result of a potential conflict of interest in Ms Berejiklian's public duties and private interests when she was in a relationship with the former Member for Wagga Wagga Mr Daryl Maguire," said Ms Tesch.
