Former Queensland government minister Leanne Donaldson is "extremely embarrassed" by her cabinet resignation but she still intends running at the next state election.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says Ms Donaldson, who quit as agriculture minister in parliament on Thursday, has told her she will attempt to retain her seat of Bundaberg despite failing to pay an $8000 rates debt and driving an unregistered vehicle.

Ms Palaszczuk on Sunday dodged questions whether the former minister was the right person for Labor at the next election, saying it would be a matter for the people of Bundaberg.

"But she is 100 per cent focused on delivering, she is working hard and she is incredibly embarrassed about what has happened," the premier said.
