Mal Brough denies rumours the AFP raided his Canberra office

MAL Brough has denied the Australian Federal Police have raided his Canberra Parliament House office. 

The Federal Member for Fisher said rumours circulating through Parliament House were untrue.

"These rumours are completely false," Mr Brough said in a statement. 

"The AFP have not sought any additional assistance in any way from me since my interview on 7 January 2016."

Mr Brough announced on Friday he would not contest his seat at the federal election later this year.

His decision came as the LNP State Executive met to decide whether it would ratify the unanimous endorsement Mr Brough had already received by Fisher branch members.

His announcement pre-empted a decision that was likely to have either forced him out of politics or to run for the seat as an independent.
