LNP boss quits after disastrous Qld election

THE LNP state director has resigned from his position ahead of a review being handed down into what went wrong for the party at the Queensland election.

Brad Henderson who has served in one of the Liberal National Party's top positions for more than a decade, first for the Nationals and later the LNP, released a statement to party members late on Thursday night.

His term as Queensland director will come to a self-determined close with the annual LNP convention in July.

Mr Henderson led the LNP campaign team which oversaw the Newman government lose office in 2015 after winning a historic majority less than three years before.

The party has ordered a review into how it went so wrong, so quickly.

In his statement, Mr Henderson said it was always his plan "to pursue other opportunities at the conclusion of my contract in March".
