He was also asked whether he thought more ministers would step down following the resignation of Mr Donnellan over allegations he had paid for other people’s party memberships.
‘Let’s see what comes out of IBAC, I’m not here to foretell what they will do, to foreshadow it or to involve myself,’ Mr Andrews responded.
Mr Donnellan announced his resignation from Cabinet on Monday and will move to the backbench in disgrace after he was thrown under the bus by Federal Labor MP Anthony Byrne, who has admitted to rampant and repeated ‘branch stacking’.
Mr Andrews stressed that during his lengthy career in parliament, he had ‘no time’ to do anything else than his duties.
‘If you go and ask Cath and the kids, they’ll tell you I had no time to do much else other than my parliamentary and ministerial duties,’ he said.
‘I’ve got a job to do. I dedicate myself to that job every waking hour so the notion that I’d have time (is) frankly…’.
The Premier was tight-lipped when questioned on Mr Donnellan’s resignation.
‘We shouldn’t be speculating about what may or may not be led, we shouldn’t be speculating on people’s responses to that,’ he said.
