ISOBEL Ellul-Hammond has resigned as an MP and blasted her GSD party’s ‘lethargy’.

The politician’s sudden withdrawal from parliament allows her to concentrate on a new role as the Gibraltar Health Authority’s Cancer Services Coordinator.

She had announced her resignation last April, but was expected to remain as an MP until after this year’s general election.

Mrs Ellul-Hammond said: “My party no longer inspires me, nor does it give me confidence for the future.

“I would be unable to cope with another four years of lethargy in opposition.”

Her decision means a by-election must be called within 90 days or before the end of November.
