Lindsay MP Emma Husar has confirmed she will not re-contest the next Federal Election, due to be held next year.

Ms Husar is currently on personal leave amid an internal Labor investigation into alleged bullying and misconduct in her electorate office.

She plans to stay in Parliament until the next election.

“It is an incredibly sad day for me,” Ms Husar told Channel Nine.

“I have just derived immense pleasure from being able to represent my community, but enough is enough.”

Ms Husar said the scandal had taken an incredible toll on her family.

“Day after day, watching my reputation be smeared and my kids trolled online, that’s been incredibly tough,” she told Nine.
