Two great friends and two outstanding people have been elected as Leader and Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party.
I have known both for many years and they possess all the qualities needed to lead our Party and our nation into the future.
They represent the next generation of the Liberal leadership team and present an opportunity to move forward as one.
Our job now is to advocate for, and deliver more and better paid jobs, lower electricity prices and continue our record investment in new medicines, hospitals, medical research and mental health.
I want to thank Malcolm Turnbull and Julie Bishop for their leadership and service to the nation.
