Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack has called for an end to the "disruption" within his party, as leadership speculation swirls on.
"There has been plenty of media speculation recently but my focus has always been on the people who we represent and I represent," the Member for Riverina said in a statement.
"This disruption now needs to be put behind us - not for my sake, not for The National Party's sake, not for the stability of government's sake, but for the sake of those people out there who don't know what they are going to do as far as their business is concerned because their pine plantation has burned down or their apple orchard is gone, or they are worried about the continuing drought."
Earlier this month, Mr McCormack survived a leadership spill after former leader Barnaby Joyce made a bid to regain the top job.
While the vote result was not publicly released, some reports have it as close as 11-10, while others say the margin was wider.
"The National Party has been delivering for regional and rural Australia for 100 years and will continue to do so for many more years to come," Mr McCormack said.
"We have been there right throughout this very tough summer, making sure we have been turning up to fire fronts, making sure that those who have been affected by natural disasters and ongoing drought are getting the support they need.
"These are the things the Riverina people who send me to Canberra want me to be talking about, to be fighting for."
Since the leadership spill, The Nationals' Llew O'Brien, a backer of Mr Joyce, has quit the party, while Prime Minister Scott Morrison has thrown his support behind Mr McCormack.
"He has the full support of his colleagues, he has my full support as the prime minister, and we've got a lot of work to do," Mr Morrison said.
Mr McCormack is also being supported by grassroots Nationals in Wagga.
Julian McLaren from the branch was dismissive of any threat to Mr McCormack's future, saying "there are a lot of ambitious people in the party".
"Mr McCormack had a very successful May election and the team just needs to bind together and do what's best for regional Australia, rather than focusing on personal ambition," he said.
Politics experts are divided on Mr McCormack's future.
Stewart Jackson, from the University of Sydney, did not foresee an immediate threat to Mr McCormack's position.
"If he doesn't survive, I think it will be chaos for The Nationals and the LNP generally," Dr Jackson said.
Dominic O'Sullivan, from Charles Sturt University, said "the history of unsuccessful spill motions is that, when they're as close as this one was reported to be, the alternative candidate simply keeps trying".
