The Federal Government’s cabinet reshuffle has prompted disunity within the ranks of the National Party. Some members of the junior Coalition partner are displeased with the decision to drop Nationals MP Darren Chester from the infrastructure portfolio and Liberal-National Party MP Keith Pitt from his role as the assistant trade minister. There has been speculation that Pitt may seek to establish a separate Nationals party room or resign from the party and join the crossbench.
