Peter Bunting is now leader of opposition business in the Senate, more than two weeks after Opposition Leader Mark Golding first announced his pick for the post.

Bunting’s return to Gordon House was delayed by the Senate appointment controversy ignited by Norman Horne delay in stepping away from the seat as he had vowed to do ahead of the People’s National Party (PNP) presidential election in November.

Bunting, who once aspired to leadership of the PNP before losing a challenge to Dr Peter Phillips in 2019 and being booted out of Parliament at last September’s general elections, took the Oath of Allegiance this morning.
