Anna Bligh quits politics

ANNA Bligh has announced she'll resign from the Queensland parliament after Labor's annihilation at the ballot box.

Her resignation will allow Labor to try to parachute a new leader in to her South Brisbane electorate.

Ms Bligh just held onto her seat, but she was one of only seven Labor MPs left after Queensland overwhelmingly voted for Campbell Newman's Liberal National Party.
