National Party MP Darren Chester says that farmers will continue to comprise a significant proportion of the party’s membership base. However, he argues that the Nationals need to appeal to a broader range of voters in order to win more seats, arguing that people from non-farming backgrounds now live in electorates that have traditionally been the party’s focus. Chester added that the Nationals must also embrace a range of views on social issues in order to appeal to voters, noting that all but one Nationals electorate voted in favour of legalising same-sex marriage.
