Riverina MP Michael McCormack is Deputy Prime Minister

Riverina MP and Minister for Veterans Affairs, Michael McCormack, has this morning been named Leader of the National Party, and Australia's new Deputy Prime Minister.

It was the result the country was expecting from the party room meeting, however, there was an unexpected development, with a late challenge from George Christensen forcing a leadership ballot.

It's the first time the Nationals have had a leadership contest in 18 years.
