A fourth MP has quit Daniel Andrews’ Labor ranks with more resignations expected in the coming days. 

Mr Andrews on Thursday announced Planning Minister Richard Wynne would not be contesting the next election on Thursday.

Mr Wynne issued a statement thanking his family and his political party for their support over the years.

‘I’m proud to be a part of this socially progressive, reforming government – but I am focusing on the next 12 months,’ the minister said.
