Australia Post boss Christine Holgate quits over Cartier watches scandal

Christine Holgate has resigned as chief executive of Australia Post after an investigation was launched into the organisation’s gift and expenses culture.

Ms Holgate has been under immense scrutiny for several weeks after it was revealed Cartier watches worth almost $20,000 were given to senior staff.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison labelled the gifts disgraceful and appalling in a fiery speech to parliament, and declared if the embattled chief executive did not wish to stand aside “she can go”.

Ms Holgate later accused the prime minister of humiliating her and said there were no legal grounds for her standing aside.
