Barnaby Joyce loses support of WA Nationals
The leader of the Nationals party in Western Australia, Mia Davies, says Barnaby Joyce has lost the support of the state branch.
In a statement this afternoon, Ms Davies says Barnaby Joyce’s position as Nationals leader is untenable.
“Mr Joyce’s actions have caused pain for his family but it is the ongoing damage Mr Joyce is causing the Nationals organisation that is of greatest concern to me as WA Leader,” the statement said.
The saga embroiling Mr Joyce may drag on into next month, with all Nationals MPs unlikely to meet on Monday as expected.
Without the entire Nationals party room together, it’s unlikely Mr Joyce will face a challenge for the top job.
