Deputy Prime Minister and Federal Leader of The Nationals Warren Truss has congratulated Member for Dubbo Troy Grant on being elected Leader of the NSW Nationals.

“Troy has many strengths which equip him well for leadership,” Mr Truss said.

“His passion for regional New South Wales and his commitment to getting a better deal for those living and working in non-metropolitan areas of the state will motivate The Nationals under his leadership.

“The NSW Nationals are fortunate to have so many outstanding Members of Parliament and with such a strong team behind him, I'm sure Troy will lead the Party to many future successes and achieve great things for the people of regional New South Wales.

“I look forward to working with him and the rest of the NSW Nationals team to secure a brighter future for regional areas.”
