Joel Fitzgibbon reflects on ‘great privilege’ of serving in politics for 25 years

Outgoing Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon says it has been a great honour to serve in the House of Representatives for 25 years.

Mr Fitzgibbon announced on Monday he will be retiring from politics at the next federal election.

He told Sky News host Paul Murray he is "very proud" of what he has achieved, locally, nationally, and internationally.

"And I’m very grateful to all those who have supported me for all that time in the electorate."
