The National Party is set to become more of a team-focused party under their new leader, Todd Muller.

In his first statement after rolling Simon Bridges, Muller said there's no Team Todd, there is no Team Nikki, or anyone else – there is only Team National.

Muller said his focus as leader is New Zealand's economic recovery and the strengthening of every community throughout the country, and that he would not be opposition for opposition's sake.

NZ Herald political reporter Jason Walls joined Francesca Rudkin to discuss how Muller could change National, and the pros and cons of his new approach.
