Giddings sacks Greens duo

Premier Lara Giddings has sacked the two Greens ministers this morning ahead of announcing the election date.

Greens Leader Nick McKim and Cassy O'Connor were called into the Premier's office this morning and told their ministerial commission would be withdrawn effective tomorrow.

Mr McKim has held the education, corrections and sustainable transport portfolios while Ms O'Connor served as Human Services and Community Development Minister.

The Premier will make an announcement early this afternoon confirming the sackings, the date Tasmanians will go to the polls and her plan to recall parliament to fast track the pulp mill.
