Damian Drum: THIRD Scott Morrison Liberal MP announces he won't run at the next election

A Victorian Nationals MP has announced he won't be contesting the next Federal election - the third member of Scott Morrison's team to do so in as many days.

Damian Drum joined Health Minister Greg Hunt and Attorney-General Christian Porter in heading for the exits on Friday morning. 

In a statements, the Nicholls MP said he believed it was the 'perfect time to pass the baton' to a new candidate for the regional seat.   

The trio of resignations come as Education Minister Alan Tudge also stood aside from the ministry after his former press secretary levelled serious allegations about their consensual affair at a press conference. 

Mr Tudge has rejected staffer Rachelle Miller's version of events.  

Scott Morrison will be hunting for some new faces to fill his team after three MPs announced they will not contest the next election
