Mr Booth has been a member of the state’s House of Assembly since 2002, representing the electorate of Bass.

He became party leader in April 2014.

“Since my father died on Sunday, I have taken the last few days to reflect upon how short a time we have on this planet, and the importance of using that time wisely to meet a variety of responsibilities to, and needs of, others,” Mr Booth said in a statement issued on Wednesday.
