Speaking at a press conference in Canberra, Sherry said he was retiring from the ministry and would remain in the Senate, but he will not contest the next election.

Sherry said the decision was his alone and he did not discuss it with anyone inside the government before he told Prime Minister Gillard at the ALP National Conference a week ago.

Sherry said he is 56 years old, with three young children, and he had decided to pursue other interests.
