Gladys Berejikilan, John Barilaro and Andrew Constance have all resigned, but for different reasons

It's been anything but a relaxing long weekend at Macquarie Street.

On Friday, Premier Gladys Berejiklian resigned, shortly after NSW's Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) announced it was investigating her.

She was not the only Coalition domino to fall.

Transport Minister Andrew Constance yesterday announced he would be exiting state politics to pursue his ambitions in Canberra.

This morning, Deputy Premier and Nationals leader John Barilaro revealed he was going too.

The major upheaval couldn't have come at a worse time for Australia's most populous state, which is dealing with a major COVID-19 outbreak and is also about to start its lockdown exit and live with the virus.

Here's why so many high-profile people are leaving.
