B2005/65 - The Nationals won’t push for Deputy Presidency

Leader of The Nationals in the Senate, Ron Boswell said today that The Nationals would not contest the Deputy Presidency of the Senate. “In the interest of a smooth running Senate and after discussions with my National colleagues we have agreed not to seek the Deputy Presidency.”

“We are a party small in number and we have decided to concentrate our efforts in representing our constituents in rural and regional Australia, in small business and in Australian families instead of in the running of the Parliament.”
