Dominic Perrottet has been elected leader of the NSW Liberals and will be the next premier of NSW.
Mr Perrottet won a ballot against Planning Minister Rob Stokes at a party room meeting of Liberal MPs at NSW Parliament House on Tuesday morning.
Mr Perrottet won 39 votes to five. As expected, Jobs Minister Stuart Ayres was elected unopposed as the deputy Liberal leader.
The vote followed the shock resignation of Gladys Berejiklian as premier on Friday.
