Shane Reti is the new deputy leader of the National Party.

Judith Collins was also reconfirmed as party leader.

Collins said that “It is an enormous privilege to be reconfirmed as leader of the National Party,” she said in a statement issued shortly after a National Party vote.

The party met this morning to decide who would slot into the number two spot after Gerry Brownlee announced he would step aside late last week.

Dr Reti is a former GP and came to Parliament in 2014 as the MP for Whangārei. He has been a health spokesperson under Collins’ leadership. He lost the seat in last month’s election and is now a list MP.

He will keep the health portfolio.
