Queensland MP Duncan Pegg has announced he is retiring from state politics as he fights cancer.

The Stretton MP addressed parliament this afternoon.

In a statement on Twitter, he said he can no longer serve his community.

“Since 2019, I have been fighting for my electorate, and also, fighting cancer like many Queenslanders.

“Unfortunately I am no longer in a position to both fight cancer and fight for my community in the way you deserve.”

Following recent health advice, he said he has been forced to re-think his political career.

He revealed his diagnosis in parliament in 2019.
