Peter Dutton will be leader of the Liberal Party, says Liberal MP Alan Tudge.
“I think he’ll be incredibly effective actually,” Mr Tudge told Sky News Australia.
“He’s a person of immense character, experience, he has very deep values in the Liberal Party and I think we need to go back to those values.
“I think he’ll be a very effective Liberal leader at holding the Labor Party to account.”
Mr Tudge said a “strong woman” is needed in the role of deputy leader but will ultimately be determined by the party room.
