Gladys gives details of private note


GLADYS Berejiklia­n has spoken publicly for the first time since she resigned as NSW premier, revealing the contents of a private note she left for her former colleagues.

Ms Berejiklia­n emerged from her electorate office in the Sydney suburb of Willoughby on Wednesday to pick up flowers left there by supporters.

“I just want everybody to know I will read every single card and every single message,” she told reporters.

Ms Berejiklia­n shocked colleagues and the public on Friday when she announced she was resigning as premier amid an anticorrup­tion investigat­ion.

Her former treasurer, Dominic Perrottet, took over the top job and on Tuesday told reporters that he had received a message from Ms Berejiklia­n that he read to the other Liberals at a private meeting.

Ms Berejiklia­n on Wednesday revealed what she said in the message.

“I just wanted to say thank you to everybody for the support they've showed me, it's very comforting,” she said.

“And I just want everybody to get behind the new Premier, Premier Perrottet, and the NSW government in this important time.

“He will be an outstandin­g leader in this important time.”
