Racing Queensland’s embattled chief executive has until close of business to show why he should keep his job.

Darren Condon was stood aside last week and given five days to make a case to keep his job in the wake of a damning report on the live baiting scandal in the greyhound racing industry.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk sidelined Mr Condon and sacked all directors of the state’s four racing boards after a Commission of Inquiry found the greyhound sector had failed to ensure integrity and the welfare of racing animals.

Mr Condon has not said if he’ll try to keep his job.
