Former Nationals' leader Barnaby_Joyce will run for the leadership of the party if there is a spill triggered by the resignation of deputy leader Bridget McKenzie over the 'sports rorts' saga | srpeatling

"If there's a spill, Kochie, I'll put my hand up,"Mr Joyce told Channel 7's Sunrise program.Advertisement

Agriculture Minister Bridget McKenzie resigned from federal cabinet on Sunday over her role in the "sports rorts" saga which has engulfed the Morrison government for more than a fortnight. The Nationals will meet tomorrow to vote for her replacement but senior government figures were concerned on Sunday night it could set off a fresh round of infighting within the junior Coalition partner, with Senator McKenzie's resignation opening up the positions of deputy leader, Senate leader and cabinet minister, and an outer ministry post.
