David Littleproud, the rookie MP who was recently elevated to cabinet as Agriculture and Water Minister, was looking at a last-minute challenge but ruled it out late last night.
In a statement sent at 11pm, Littleproud said he was humbled by support from colleagues but it was time to get behind McCormack and “think about stability and the good of the party”.
One of the MPs voting for the new leader will be the old one, Barnaby Joyce, now a humble backbencher.
Thanks for joining us for the day in politics. It will be words by me, Fergus Hunter, and pictures from Alex Ellinghausen and Dominic Lorrimer.
