Former Howard Government minister Peter Reith has been hospitalised after a suspected stroke.

He had been campaigning for the Victorian Liberal presidency, but it’s understood he will pull out following the ‘serious medical emergency’.

‘Peter Reith has been a dedicated servant of the Liberal Party for more than four decades and is one of its most beloved statesmen,’ Opposition Leader Matthew Guy said in a statement.

‘On behalf of all Victorian Liberals, I wish him a full and speedy recovery.’
