DescriptionThe New South Wales National party leader, John Barilaro, will face a vote of no-confidence when parliament resumes on Tuesday after the junior Coalition partner had a very public stoush with the Liberals over koala protections.

Barilaro appears likely to hang on to the Nationals leadership, and the job of deputy premier that comes with it, when his party meets early in the day. But Labor’s no-confidence motion on the floor of the lower house later could set the stage for some Liberal MPs to show their displeasure by not turning up for the vote.

The opposition motion is likely to be defeated but will provide further theatre on a day when Barilaro will be the focus of question time attacks and the premier, Gladys Berejiklian, will be asked to publicly support her deputy.

Working relations between the Liberals and Nationals are at an all-time low and a joint party room meeting on Tuesday – the first since the koala stoush – promises to be a toxic encounter.
