Senator JOYCE (QueenslandLeader of The Nationals in the Senate) (12:25): by leave—I inform the Senate that the National Party will be electing its office bearers at three o'clock this afternoon. I hope to be able to inform you that everything will remain as it is; otherwise, someone will be informing you that it will not. I congratulate Senator Bob Brown and Senator Christine Milne. I know that in the past you have had ballots on that deputy leader position, and I am sure that, with the open and transparent relation¬≠ship that the Greens have, we will be able to find out if there are any further ballots with regard to prospective contenders for that position. But we congratulate you both—for the time being!
