Fight for Nationals leadership far from over: Mark Latham

Mark Latham says newly re-elected Nationals leader Michael McCormack shouldn’t be too confident in his position.

Mr McCormack retained the leadership of the National Party after defeating a coup brought on by Barnaby Joyce.

“That spells trouble with a capital ‘t’. The agitation against the leader will continue.

“The thing about Michael McCormack, really, is he doesn’t seem to punch through. The National Party has something of an identity crisis underway.”
