From First Up, 5:50 am on 15 July 2020

Judith Collins says she feels privileged to have been chosen to lead the National Party. Last night at an emergency caucus meeting at Parliament the seasoned National MP was elected to the party's top job and Gerry Brownlee as her deputy. It comes after Todd Muller resigned in a shock move yesterday morning, citing health problems. Ms Collins told last night's news conference her focus now will be on helping rebuild and deal with the economic and jobs crisis by getting Kiwis back to work.
