I intend to continue as Nats leader: Grant

AAP logoAAP 13/11/2016

Troy Grant says he intends to continue as Nationals leader despite a disastrous showing by the Nationals in the NSW seat of Orange.

Nationals MP Andrew Fraser has told the ABC he will move for a leadership spill at the first party room meeting on Tuesday.

Mr Grant says the final result of the by-election isn't known but the massive swing against the nationals sends a strong message to the the state government.

"The message for Macquarie Street is clear: Government is there to support communities and otherwise, should just get out of people's lives," he told AAP in a statement.

"It's a privilege to serve as NSW Nationals leader and I intend to continue to do so."

The swing against the Nationals in the Orange by-election came after voter anger over council amalgamations and the state government's decision to dump its ban on greyhound racing.
