MEDIA STATEMENT: Nationals leadership
MEDIA STATEMENT from KEITH PITT MP on Nationals leadership:
“A ballot was held this morning and I congratulate Michael McCormack who remains as Nationals Party leader and Deputy Prime Minister. I also congratulate David Littleproud on his promotion to Deputy Leader of the Nationals.
“It was a privilege to stand and be considered for the Deputy Leader position and I thank my colleagues for their support.
“My focus has always been on my constituents and the Australian people, first and foremost. Not what is happening in the Canberra ‘bubble’. We have regions about to begin the recovery process from devastating bushfires, many others still in drought, and the coronavirus outbreak all of which remain our priority.”
