The made the announcement at a media conference on Friday afternoon, two-and-a-half weeks before the WA parliament sits for the first time in 2023.
Nationals WA and Opposition Leader Mia Davies will not be contesting the next state election.
Ms Davies, 44, was just 30-years-old when she was sworn into office in 2008, making her the youngest member of the WA Legislative Council at the time.
She became Leader of the Opposition in WA at the 2021 state election, when a disastrous result for the Liberal Party left them with fewer MPs than the Nats, giving the latter party control of the opposition alliance.
More to come.
