The new leader's first appointments are Peter Whittle AM as Deputy Leader, Paul Oakden as Party Chairman and Patrick O'Flynn MEP as Principal Political Advisor.

Paul has used his acceptance speech to call for unity and warned that members who just want to cause trouble will not be welcome in the party. The time for infighting and factionalism has come to an end.
