Victorian senator Bridget McKenzie has been voted the Nationals' new deputy leader.

Victorian senator Bridget McKenzie has been voted the Nationals' new deputy leader, replacing former NSW senator Fiona Nash who resigned over her dual citizenship.

Senator McKenzie was elected during a party room meeting on Thursday after Ms Nash was found to be ineligible to sit in parliament by the High Court in October for being a dual citizen at the time of her election.

"Now it's about getting on with delivering for regional Australia in the coalition government," Senator McKenzie told reporters.
