Nats stick with leaders
PETER Walsh will remain the leader and Steph Ryan the deputy leader of the Nationals after both were elected to the roles uncontested.
Mr Walsh said the Nationals will continue to work with communities to give them a strong voice in the parliament and put regional issues onto the government’s agenda.
“I’m very grateful for the endorsement from my colleagues and am looking forward to getting back to work for Victoria’s rural and regional communities,” Mr Walsh said.
Ms Ryan said she was looking forward to ‘‘delivering a better deal’’ for people living in country Victoria.
“We will fight every day for our communities to ensure that country people get the services, infrastructure and investment we need and deserve,” Ms Ryan said.
“Peter is a relentless champion for regional communities across Victoria and I’m honoured to once again be part of the leadership team with him.’’
