Mike Baird puts his hand up for Premier


Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian has agreed not to seek leadership of the state Liberal Party - leaving the way clear for Mike Baird to become Premier.


They've released a joint statement asking MPs to support Mr Baird as leader, and Ms Berejiklian as deputy liberal leader - at this afternoon's


party-room meeting .


Community Services Minister Pru Goward also wants the deputy's job - but says the most important thing is to get a leadership team in place quickly.
