Veteran South Australian MP Duncan McFetridge will quit the Liberal Party after losing pre-selection in his seat for the 2018 state election.

Dr McFetridge has confirmed the move and says he will make a statement to parliament next week.

He has held the suburban seat of Morphett since 2002, but recently lost pre-selection to former Collingwood footballer and local mayor Stephen Patterson.
