National has a new leader and deputy but can they win the election with just 120 sleeps to go?

Bay of Plenty MP Todd Muller and Auckland Central MP Nikki Kaye became the party's new leader and deputy on Friday making it clear their election campaign would be focused on a plan for a post-Covid-19 economic recovery.

Acknowledging former leader Simon Bridges and Paula Bennett, Todd Muller said his election had come about after a 'respectful' caucus meeting.
