Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will make changes to his Cabinet team following the election of Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce as leader of the National Party. Joyce was the only contender for the leadership, while Fiona Nash won a fiercely-contested ballot for the role of deputy leader. The National Party is set to gain an additional Cabinet portfolio under a new agreement between the Coalition parties. Outgoing National Party leader Warren Truss has expressed confidence in his successor as party leader and Deputy Prime Minister.
