Nahan, Davies lead opposition parties

Mike Nahan has been voted in unopposed as leader of the WA Liberals after two-term premier Colin Barnett stepped down, while former sports and recreation minister Mia Davies has been voted in as leader of the Nationals WA

Dr Nahan said he was in it for the long haul and hoped to cut short Labor's reign after just one term.

Despite Labor holding 41 seats in a 59-seat parliament, Dr Nahan said it wasn't impossible for the Liberals to achieve a swing of 7.3 per cent to form a coalition with the Nationals at the 2021 state election.
