"Gladys will make an excellent Premier and she has my full support", Mr Constance said in a statement.
"I'm someone who appreciates what it's like to face challenges in life and to have to keep applying yourself", she said.
Nationals leader John Barilaro said, "the policy of local government amalgamations has impacted 20 councils, 12 of which are in regional NSW causing uncertainty and anger, and others are locked in costly legal action - that all stops today". He is also claiming that the entire situation is a "stitch up" accusing Ms Berejiklian of "ringing up and doing deals so that this would all be a fait accompli" even before Mr Baird's resignation.
"And I've made that clear to anybody, that there's absolutely no hard feelings if people put up their hand and want to run for the leadership on Monday - competition is healthy and if people feel they want to make that contribution, they should feel free to do that".
"[She] is not across these issues in a million light years", Jones said, referring to issues left behind by the Baird government, such as council amalgamations and the lockout laws.
Mr Constance also paid tribute to Mr Baird, calling him a "good mate".
In a press release, the Urban Taskforce acknowledged the "incredible position" Baird had achieved for New South Wales, emphasising that the next premier should be someone who continues to push for growth in infrastructure, which was the hallmark of Baird's term.
