Scott Morrison’s Valedictory Speech

Scott Morrison, the former Prime Minister (2018-22), has delivered his valedictory speech to the House of Representatives.

Morrison will resign as the Liberal member for Cook later this week.

First elected to parliament in 2007, Morrison was re-elected five more times. He served nearly six years in opposition before becoming a Cabinet minister upon election of the Abbott coalition government in 2013. Becoming prime minister on August 24, 2018, Morrison won the 2019 election, but was defeated at the election of May 21, 2022.

Morrison’s valedictory address was suffused with religious references. It was followed by speeches from Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Opposition Leader Peter Dutton and former Nationals leader Michael McCormack.
