Former MP John Boscawen has been elected president of the ACT Party.
He replaces outgoing president Chris Simmons, who has held the role since 2010.
Mr Simmons nominated Mr Boscawen for the role and he was elected unopposed.
"I don't doubt that the task I am undertaking is a difficult one, but I believe the ACT Party has an important role to play in Parliament," Mr Boscawen says.
He will give his first address as president next month at the party's annual conference at Gibbs Farm, Kaukapakapa, north of Auckland.
