The former president of the Young Liberals' Launceston City branch has quit the party, airing his grievances via social media upon his exit.
The 25-year-old Kyle Barrett, once a Senate preselector for the party, said on Twitter on Saturday that "party infrastructure purely exists for those that seek to be remembered".
"Active participation is squashed in the name of the consolidation of power," he wrote.
