Premier Will Hodgman will go down in history as the second longest-serving Liberal premier when he retires from politics.
Hodgman was elected as a Liberal member for Franklin in 2002 and was appointed Deputy Leader of the Opposition.
He became leader of the Liberal Party and State Opposition in 2006.
In 2014 he led the Liberal Party to government and was sworn in as Tasmania's 45th Premier.
It was the first time in 16 years that the Liberal Party had formed a government in the state.
