WHO WON'T BE STANDING AGAIN AT THE TASMANIAN ELECTION
Lara Giddings (Labor) - Franklin
Tasmania's first and only female premier won't contest the 2018 election. Ms Giddings, who joined the Labor party in 1990, served in the state's top job from 2011-14. The 45-year-old made an emotional speech to parliament in November where she implored opposition leader Rebecca White to follow the trail she blazed.
Matthew Groom (Liberal) - Denison
The father-of-three stepped down from his role as energy minister and other portfolios in September to spend more time with his wife Ruth and young family. Mr Groom presided over the state's energy crisis in early 2016 but said he had no regrets about entering politics.
David Llewellyn (Labor) - Lyons
The long-serving Labor MP farewells politics for a second time after making a comeback in Lyons at the 2014 election. The 75-year-old served as deputy premier from 2002-2006.
