Statement on Barnaby Joyce

Attributable to Leader of The Nationals Peter Walsh

Barnaby Joyce is a tenacious and unabashed champion of rural and regional Australia and there’s no doubt communities across the country will reap benefits from Barnaby’s strong advocacy long into the future.

The State Nationals team thank Barnaby for all he has done to boost investment into roads, rail, water infrastructure, communication services, country jobs and industries and much more for the benefit our regional communities here in Victoria.

As I’ve already said, the leadership of the Federal Nationals is a matter for the Federal Nationals Party Room.

The State Nationals will continue to work productively with our Federal team to advance the issues that matter most to the people and communities we represent in regional and rural Victoria.
