Labor stalwart calling it a day

Llewellyn

Tasmania's opposition will head to the next election without its longest-serving parliamentarian.

Former Deputy Premier David Llewellyn yesterday announced he will retire from politics at the end of his current term.

Mr Llewellyn was first elected in 1986 and served in numerous ministries but says his age - 75 in August - means it's time to stand down.

His announcement follows Lara Giddings' weekend confirmation she'll also leave politics at the next state poll and Bryan Green's resignation in March.
