Member for Moore Shane Love has been elected WA Nationals deputy leader.

WA Nationals’ leader Mia Davies made the announcement outside Parliament House today.

The vacancy came after outgoing deputy leader Jacqui Boydell announced she would not be contesting next year’s State Election as member for the Mining and Pastoral region.

Ms Davies threatened to resign in July last year, thwarting a spill motion for Ms Boydell’s position in which North West Central member Vince Catania and Warren-Blackwood member Terry Redman each attempted to replace her.
