Western Australia Transport Minister and Treasurer Troy Buswell resigned from the position this month.

Premier Colin Barnett accepted the resignation of Buswell over a telephone call, and Barnett will assume both Buswell’s portfolios for the immediate future.

"Troy has made an enormous contribution to the State of Western Australia in a number of ministerial portfolios and as Treasurer," says Barnett.

"I wish him the very best for the future."

Buswell will continue as the member for Vasse.
